Torre della Finanza

The tower was built at the turn of the 18th century to oversee access to the mouth of the Po di Volano and to levy tolls, but also for defence purposes.
Torre della Finanza

The building was commissioned by the Papal authorities slightly more inland than its mid-17th century predecessor, that had been destroyed by tidal action. The rectangular building features a partially sunken ground floor with brickwork embankment which had originally been designed as a star-shaped rampart. It takes its name from the Guardia di Finanza (Excise Inspectors), who were the last tenants.
