The Etruscan Well

What makes the Etruscan Well exceptional is both its truly remarkable
size, since it reaches a depth of approximately 37 meters, and the type of
construction and its roof. The structure of the well consists of a cylindrical shaft, starting at about 4 meters below the present-day street level, and a quadrangular structure, which occupies the space between the road
surface and the beginning of the cylindrical shaft.
