The ancient structure of the Arco dei Gavi in Verona was built by the family Gavia, and is a rare example of an honorary arch dedicated to private citizens. The arch was placed in a very prestigious position at the beginning of the Via Postumia, the Roman Road leading to the city. In the Middle Ages it was used as a gateway to the city. During the Napoleonic rule in Italy the Arch was dismantled in one day, the 29th August 1805, by soldiers who thought that it might hinder their entry into Verona. The Veronese carefully guarded the dismantled stones and rebuilt it in its present position, not far from its original location, in a sqquare to the right of the medieval Castelvecchio.
