Overview
More
Rocca d'Anfo is a fortified military complex built in XV century by the Venetian Republic in the town of Anfo on Lake Idro. The agglomerate, made up of military construction, is distributed in a triangular strip of land (50ha). One side is roughly 1 kilometer of the shore of the lake, the rest is spread on the eastern slope of Mount Censo, almost to its peak, with a difference in elevation which varies from 371 m s.l.m. at the side to the 1050m s.l.m. at the summit of the mountain. The Rocca d'Anfo was renovated and enlarged in different periods by the military engineers of Napoleon Bonaparte, Giuseppe Zanardelli and the Italian Army Corps. It lost its strategic value in 1918, when the Trentino finally passed to the Kingdom of Italy. Used by the Italian Army as a barracks for the training of conscripts, the complex was also used as gunpowder and weapons depot. It was decommissioned in 1975, but it remained bound to the Ministry of Defence until 1992.
