An elongated island, actually composed of several islands connected by bridges, which in the past earned it the name of Spinale or Spinalonga.
It is assumed that the island, since ancient times, had an important strategic function to control the waterways towards the hinterland, which in Roman times went from Ravenna to Altino.

Lido of Venice
Reachable in about 20-30 minutes of navigation from Venice, the Lido island is located between the Venice lagoon and the Adriatic Sea and its length is approximately twelve kilometers for a width ranging from a minimum of 300 to a maximum of 1000

Separated from a main canal - the Canale maggiore of Mazzorbo - the island still today shows on its banks buildings in the Gothic-Venetian style, experiencing the same fate as the entire Torcelliano territory.
