Po River_ 5 November 2010 _Fortress of Stellata_Ferrara_Italy

The Fortress of Stellata, was born as a defensive place, this is evidenced by the presence of ditches and trenches, and it seems its origins date back to one thousand. Due to the coastal location, Stellata, was easily affordable, so it needed defenses, Stellata was also on the border with the province of Mantua. Nicolo d'Este II, who built the castle of Ferrara, in 1362, rebuilt the fortress of Stellata on the previous place. Being the first meeting point for people hostile stars, with the town of Ficarolo(Rovigo_Italy) had to defend the junction of Po river.

Fortunately, the flood of the Po River, has passed. There are still flooded wetlands, but the water is receding, returning within the basin of the Po river.
This morning, I visited this beautiful Fortress built around the year 1000 in the floodplain of the Po River, and also concerned that the enormous amount of water down the hill, mountains, and directed toward the Po River Delta, about 80 km.

  5. Hi Winter Gurl, unfortunately, these weather events, occur more frequently than several years ago, may be climate change? It is undeniable that the man has a serious responsibility for what happens.

    The castle and it's history is so interesting. I really enjoy learning about other places.
