It closely follows the route of the ancient Roman road (decumano maximo) that linked the Foro, present-day Piazza Erbe, to the Porta Borsari. The Medieval name Borsàri (bursarii) referred to the “bursars”, officials in charge of collecting talls (dazi) and taxes and payments on goods passing through the gate. A large Roman fornix, carrying the Scaligeri coat of arms engraved on the keystone, opens on to the corso Porta Borsari, and leads to the "corte delle Sgarzaríe”, the ancient cloth-and-wool market where there is still a loggia built in 1299 by Alberto I della Scala. At number 32 there is the well known “stal de le vècie”, a building with a 13th century framework, which underwent numerous adjustments, and which was finally brought back to its original splendour, in the mid 80s.
