  • Poveglia Island today appears decayed, but originated Florida and its inhabitants were skilled fishermen, now is uninhabited, but is part of the population of Venice. Despite having within it the construction of a fortification (Octagon Poveglia), he was unable to defend himself and was occupied by Genoese Admiral Pietro Doria that from there he bombarded the monastery of Santo Spirito, Poveglia was destroyed at the end of the war and its inhabitants, originally several hundred, annihilated. The Povegliotti, however, maintained their identity for centuries though now resident in Venice, traditionally used in fisheries, were among the few who can also market their products by carrying out the profession of buying fish.
