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

Since the lockdown, more restaurants are closing and abiding¬†by¬†social distancing protocol. The‚ÄĮbuchette¬†del vino, or ‚Äúwine holes‚ÄĚ,¬†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.
