Manifattura dei Marinati - Comacchio an interesting historical-culinary itinerary

The lagoon town of Comacchio, which has always been famous for its eel fishing, offers the visitor something different from the usual museum, and through the Manifattura dei Marinati we discover a historical-culinary itinerary.The skilfully restored rooms offer an admirable example of industrial archaeology, in the Sala Fuochi the gaze lingers on the grandeur of the 12 fireplaces, in the calata the fish landing place is clearly understood through the optical illusion of the canal in front of the structure entering the building;

In order to pass on today’s pleasure to future generations, the Sala Fuochi comes back to life in the winter months during the eel fishing season. Even today, the Manifattura processes the fish according to the traditional technique, adhering to the production specifications of the Slow Food presidium for the defence and dissemination of food and wine traditions.

Reaching the Manifattura dei Marinati is very easy, just walk under the long Loggiato dei Cappuccini that connects it to the city centre.
