Between the Path of the Sandbanks, and archaeological sites of great value with a visit to the Tezon Grande inside which numerous internal finds unearthed in the lagoon are exhibited, today the Lazzaretto Nuovo in Venice is making a boom in tourists becoming one of the most visited and most requested.
But here’s why Cammarota of Vienna started from the Isola del Lazzaretto Nuovo in Venice:
“There is an interesting archaeological area, all to be seen with numerous ancient finds. Vienna Cammarota, began its journey, on April 26, towards Beijing, from a very important place for the history of Venice and Europe.
The Lazzaretto Nuovo is among the Venetian hospitals, the only one to have been fully recovered in recent decades.
Today, after the many restorations carried out – said Gerolamo Fazzini, archaeologist and President of Archeoclub D’Italia based in Venice, on the eve of the departure of Vienna Cammarota – in addition to the historical-archaeological and monumental aspects, it can also be used as a naturalistic and environmental area: an ecomuseum.
In Venice after the “Lazzaretto vecchio” (1423), the first lazaretto in history, where manifest cases of plague were isolated, in 1468 a second health facility was established which had the task of isolating the suspects, called “lazzareto novo” to distinguish it on the other already existing, Lazzaretto Vecchio.
So this is where the first quarantine was born, we will see the green pass, with the use of sanitation techniques. Interesting are the archaeological area, the Tezon Grande now a museum with numerous finds, then the Walls with the belvedere, the Path of the Sandbanks able to show the lagoon in its original state “.
