The Forte Marghera is – as you’ll already have guessed – an ancient fort (built in the 19th century) that played a significant role in the period of the Risorgimento – means the unification of Italy and therefore in the war against the Habsburg. (Alongside the Venetian coast – from Treporti to Chioggia – you’ll find about 50 of those forts.)
The ancient (and today pretty decayed) fort has no military use any more, but welcomes cultural and musical activities and events during summer when the streets and restaurants (for instance Gatto Rosso) are filled with numerous visitors of the concerts of local/national celebrities. In the “Baia” (bay) you’ll find tables, seats and sunbeds to chill out and enjoy the music (DJ) and some drinks (for a good price).
How to get there?
