Close to our B&B: the furnace

Romantic Holiday Rome B&B | Fornace Veschi

Until the beginning of the 20th century, few steps away from our Romantic Holiday Rome B&B several furnaces were active for the production of bricks. The area was rich of clay soil and for this reason one of the streets of the neighbourhood was named via dei Monti di Creta (street of the clay mounts) with reference to its soil. The municipality decided to exploit the soil and to build here bricks factories and furnaces for bricks firing. The factory was active until the first years of the 20th century when clay was no longer requested. Today there is only one furnace named “fornace Veschi” with its 30 metres height that is an example of a nice artefact of industrial archaeology.
