Italy – Arsenale, the secret Venice

The Somadida Nature Reserve (Auronzo di Cadore, Belluno), forestry guard Stefano Azzalini cuts down a fir tree damaged by a violent gust of wind at the end of 2018. From this forest the Venice Arsenale sourced its beech and fir for constructing the main masts of the ships. Cadore fell under the rule of the Republic in 1420. The timber was transported to the Arsenale on rafts on the River Piave.
