The stream of the canal played an important role as a communication link between the lagoon of Venice and Padua. The area is characterized by the presence of many villas built between the sixteenth and the eighteenth century by the Venetian noble families, testifying to the power aristrocratica period. At that time, the Riviera was achieved only by moving the boat, while the existing roads were built later.
