  • Yes, because the well-known writer of best sellers with the characters always on the hunt for mysteries could not miss a place where it is said 50% of the surface is made up of the ashes of thousands and thousands of bodies of the victims of the plague, which here were given to The flames. It seems that later the island has not enjoyed more renown and even the remains of the dangerous building are of some former medical structure, asylum or sanatorium, I have no certainty about it. What is really interesting, however, is that there is an association for the defense of the island that has been fighting for years against the possibility that this gem will also be sold to some hotel group making it in fact private (as happened to many others in the the association won an appeal against the State Demanio (incredible ! ) which forbade the landing on the whole island, a ban that remains only relative to the part where there are dangerous buildings, possible now instead in the remaining rich part of vegetation. With a deep meter on the boat given the numerous shallows (or with the occasionally organized visits) it's really a "must" of the lagoon really not to be missed

  • An abandoned island. Entering is forbidden, you can only reach them by private boat. The Venetian youth uses it as a party island
