This stronghold, built to defend Mantua in the early 19C, was partially destroyed by an explosion in May 1917. The French and Austrians incorporated the fort into the great fortifications of the mighty walls of Mantua.


With the advent of artillery in the late 19C, it lost its strategic importance and was turned into an ammunitions store. It stands in an area covered with vegetation.
