Past the bridge of the respiratory Malcontenti, Piella and Guglielmo Oberdan, the channel of the Rhine sharp turn to the left inn an internal light well, formerly included in the carmelite convent of San Martino. From this point the canal was called the Moline for the mills for grain distributed along its course, which continues through the streets Alessandrini and Capo of Lucca.The channels since the XII in Bologna were used for food production and for navigation beyond the city walls. The economy of Bologna experienced a flourishing development over the centuries thanks to the many industries that used the hydraulic force of the general channels. The channel of Moline, who hails from Chiusa di Casalecchio fed mills, spinning silk, sawmills and hammers.This is what is written on the sign of this channel. I hope I have translated well.
