Septem Maria Museum
The Septem Maria Museum is hosted in the engine room of the Amolara dewatering plant, a Neoclassical building designed in 1853 by Engineer Cesare De Lotto for the “drainage of the Campagna Vecchia Inferiore Consortium by means of steam-operated dewatering wheels”.
The engine room contains two centrifugal pumps (for an overall water capacity of 7,200 l/s) that drained the excess water from the Campagna Vecchia Inferiore, conveyed it into a drainage canal and then made it flow back into the sea through the Canalbianco.
Besides the engine room, you can also visit the Reclamation Workshop. In the Entrance Hall, a 1624 engraving by Filippo Cluverio shows the Septem Mària district, spreading out from Altino to Ravenna and from Ostiglia to the sea.
