The Fabbrica Vecchia and the Marchesato
The old buildings at the entrance of the Candiano Canal
The Fabbrica Vecchia originally hosted the port health deputy, the archorage officer, and the keeper of the key of the chain at the mouth of the canal. The Marchesato was an inn, workshop, and warehouse. Over the years these buildings have been used for several other uses, but their history has influenced the entrance of the Candiano Canal for more than a century.
