It’s necessary to go back in time to understand the port’s history. The town’s mayor, Baron Federico Indelli and municipal council decided to dedicate the construction to Queen Margherita of Savoia with its advantage to request “40 disused iron cannons to use as ships moorings”.
To acquire the bollards 12,000 Lira was needed. The appointed Royal Navy employee refused the expense and supplied only 37 tons of old used iron for 25 bollards. Today these cannons are still visible along the front of the old pier.
