spreading of plague


June 8

on Wednesday

The Porta a Faenza(1) was closed, because the plague was very bad outside this gate, and was in three or four houses in Florence.

(1) This gate, which was on the Prato, was demolished when the Fortezza di Basso was built, or rather, it was built into the keep of the fort. (Trans.)
