Todeschini Palace

  • Open

The small port (called "Old Port"), which is spoken of already in 1274, was expanded at the time of the Venetian Republic to serve the burgeoning market of grains. On the ancient dock, you can see the arcades of the Todeschini palace, a building designed by the architect Giulio Todeschini as the town hall. Leaning against the last column is the stone "of the unemployed", where the town criers stood but were also doomed to failure. In 1806, the construction of the dock and the lighthouse began in the Nordic style, which, to this day, distinguishes the view of the lake, while the Venetian bridge is the work of the 1930s.
