Just downstream is the abandoned hulk of a once-important airmail station built in the Thirties, one of several along the rivers between Torino and Venice which were used by hydroplanes (obviously). One of the local rowers told us that when Mussolini came to inaugurate this wonderful structure, he leaned out from the terrace to take a leak into the river and fell in. If a passing fisherman hadn’t managed to pull him ashore, the history of the world would have been very different. This story was told to me as true. But the building is an authentic treasure, in my view, and I’m sorry they’re letting it go to rack and ruin.
