In the thirteenth century many Italian cities enacted laws on town planning resulting in wide ranging and effective building construction efforts, aesthetical improvements in town texture and significant water works projects in order to supply with clean water every neighbourhood, in sufficient quantity to ensure the cleanliness and hygiene of streets and public areas. The political measures taken and regulations enacted by the municipality included the setting up of new highly specialized magistrate’s courts to monitor enforcement and to act promptly and autonomously for the solution of day-to-day problems, both simple and complex Hence the institution of the “mud notary”, a magistrate established in Bologna circa 1260.
