Florence’s wine portals from the 17th Century | BBC Travel

Since the lockdown, more restaurants are closing and abiding by social distancing protocol. The buchette del vino, or “wine holes”, became a prominent symbol of the Bubonic plague of 1630 as they allowed for the safe sale of wine and food to avoid infection. Today, restaurants are using the wine holes again as an opportunity to serve their customers and for locals to reminisce about their rich history.
