Sotoportego (literally, “under the porch”) is one of the most characteristic elements of urbanism in the city of Venice .
It is in fact a connecting passage between calli or other roads formed directly in the body of a building, typically by deleting a portion of a height equal to the entire ground floor. Very often Sotoportego is the only access to a court or to a small square .
In many sotoporteghi are often small shrines containing sacred images dedicated to the Saints or the Madonna and are not uncommon even small reliefs, almost always of a sacred character, made of Istrian stone and white marble.
