The Amedeo Funivia
One of the characteristics of the Marina District are the so-called "funivias", little ropeways that cross the streets from one appartment to another. The example shown here connects two family appartments in Via Principe Amedeo 31 and 20, just four metres apart. Funivias are used to exchange goods of primary necessity, such as lemon, salt, bread, and oil.
Whenever you walk through the streets of the Marina, look up in the air to catch a glimpse of what might be bargained overhead. You might be surprised of what you see. Some people even pretend to have observed roasted maialetto (suckling pig) crossing the street; however, such stories most probably belong to the productive urban myths that surround the Funivias.
