Trecenta

Description

The town's name has Latin roots, and derives from "triginta centum", the distance between the main center and the nearby city of Rimini. Municipality in the province of Rovigo, located on the banks of Canalbianco, Trecenta is a rural center characterized by the presence of numerous "gorghi", ponds fed by springs and rich in typical lake flora and fauna.
Originally an Etruscan settlement, the territory was conquered by the Romans in 163 B.C., who built here a military camp. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the area was invaded by barbarian tribes and became the first possession of the Estensi family, who later ceded the lands to the Vatican State, while the history of Trecenta was tied to the family Uguccione dei Contrari for a long time. At the end of the XVIII century the territories were conquered by French troops led by Napoleon and submitted their domain, until in 1866 it was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy. In 1951 the city was devastated by a disastrous flood of the Po, which led to a certain exodus.
