Mantua's famous and evocative hydrography is largely due to the work of engineer Alberto Pitentino from Bergamo: at the end of the 12th century, he was appointed by the city to design the arrangement of the Mincio River. It is however clear from historical sources that, even before this intervention, Mantua was completely surrounded by the river, which broadened out and split into two branches, thus forming a real island.
