Additional information

Context

In the 1800s, the people in a town had the opportunity to submit anonymous complaints by writing their accusation and posting it in a public space – usually the door of a church or of a public building (like the equivalent of a Town Hall). The police had the duty of recording and investigating each of these complaints. The name “Pasquinate” comes from the belief that the tradition started with the Church of San Pasquale in Rome.
