The curved and sloping cobblestone pavement characterizes the Stalletta di Pidio. Popular legend tells us that from this room every Christmas Eve, the carriage of the gentlemen with the gifts for the poor of the town departed. The origin of the name of Stalletta, comes from the
stove (Deep Gap) rooted in the history of Santarcangelo. Leopoldo Cantucci, said Pidio, was born in the shadow of the fortress on 1st July 1876. He died on 31st January 1943. In his everyday life he was a cobbler, but the villagers remember him with affection for his unmatched popularity.
