Fiumicino

Overview

The city of Fiumicino lies along the Tiber delta, a position that has always ensured it great strategic and logistical importance. The ancient port of Trajan is still perfectly preserved and tells the city's most ancient history. Isola Sacra is a pearl in the middle of the delta, but the maritime heart of Fiumicino is set on the right bank of the river. Built during the nineteenth century, this village with a soul intertwined with the waves of the sea is a succession of small houses, bridges that open or rise to let boats pass, moored boats and fishing boats that leave or arrive, seagull calls, fish to be unloaded, nets to be adjusted. The atmosphere here is that of a village that has always resembled only itself. To itself and to the sea.
