Manifattura dei Marinati collects the traditions and culture of Comacchio, a town that has always been characterized by a deep link with its Valli (lagoons). In autumn, it is possible to observe the whole processing cycle of anchovies, sand smelts, and above all eels, which are prepared in the so-called "Sala Fuochi" (Fire Room) in four main stages: cutting, sticking, cooking, and packaging. Upstairs there is an audiovisual hall where you can watch at videos showing the town and its surrounding territory in the past and giving information on the past life in the lagoons. The historical heritage is witnessed by the several "Maròte" you will find at the entrance of the Visitor Center and inside it: they are characteristic flat-bottomed hatch-boat, with the whole upper surface covered and with holes and slits on the bottom and on the sides.
