Lagosanto

It seems that in the 8th century the religious hermit Appianus dwelled in the vicinity of the old village, on the banks of the marshy lagoon (“lago”= lake) by which it was lapped: from this circumstance the village derived its name. The life of Lagosanto, like that of all other nearby villages, was greatly influenced by the drainage of the land, which transformed it into an agrarian village and profoundly modified the territory. Up to the Seventies, the Canale di Marozzo passed through the center of the village; this canal, which linked Codigoro with Comacchio, may have represented the oldest route of communication in the lowland territory of the "Basso Ferrarese".
