A small village in the province of Ferrara, COMACCHIO rises in the middle of the lagoon of the same name, between Po di Volano and Po di Comacchio and was originally built by joining 13 small islands formed at the mouth of the Po di Primario with the sea.
Before suffering the inexorable silting due to the proximity of the mouth of the River Po, over the centuries it was an important naval port in the Adriatic Sea and one of the main ports for trade in Emilia Romagna.
Of its glorious past, the city today preserves architectures and buildings of great value, beyond the characteristic canals that have made it the nickname of “Little Venice” over time.
- The Po Delta Park: the village of Comacchio is entirely inside the Park, which gives it an extraordinary naturalistic attraction, especially regarding the volatile and faunal species that can be admired here.
- The Trepponti Complex: a true symbol of Comacchio, the Trepponti bridge was once used as a fortified gateway to the city.
- The Museum of the Ancient Delta: a very rich archaeological museum that illustrates the evolution of the territory and human settlements that have characterized the history of the ancient Po Delta.
- Il Loggiato dei Cappuccini: a sequence of no less than 142 arches that lead from the center of Comacchio to the ancient Sanctuary dedicated to Santa Maria in Aula Regia.
- The Manifattura dei Marinati: the museum which represents an important piece of the economic and gastronomic history of the city
- The Museo delle Valli: an open-air museum inserted inside the Po Delta Park and together with a historical naturalistic itinerary inside the Valli di Comacchio
- The House Museum Remo Brindisi: summer stay of the master Remo Brindisi until his death, was built between 1971 and 1973 on a project by architect-designer Nanda Vigo.
