Abstract

Pontremoli lies in northern Tuscany, in the district of Massa Carrara. The town is situated at the confluence of Magra river and Verde stream, on a very important medieval road: the Bia Francigena or Romea that connected Rome and the Mediterranea Sea with France and northern Spain. Archaeologiucal excavations, in yhe context of a new bridge construction over Magra river, brought to light five graves and some structures, most probably the remains of the medieval Saint John's hospital, known since the end of XIII century. The finds, wich include two French gold coins from inhumations (Charles V and Chrales VI, kings of France respectively 1364-1380 and 1380-1422), suggest close contacts with northern Italy and the French Kingdom.
