"Historical landmark of Veneto"

Hotel Forte del 48 is a historic property located in San Donà di Piave, in the heart of the eastern venetian countryside.
The name Forte del '48, a former inn who also gave its name to an old town borough dates back to the War of Independence and Venice's resistance in 1849. A Hapsburg army stronghold was in fact built on this very site in 1848 (hence its name), and torn down during World War I.  
At the turn of the 21st century, a book written by Dr. Dino Casagrande entitled "Il Forte del '48 and the military operation failing down the River Piave" was presented and published in collaboration with the De Faveri family.
The author says about the facility, "Over one hundred years ago, the building housed a tavern known as "Osteria Forte del '48".
The oldest section of the building dates back to before 1878, as it was built prior to the cadastral revision that took place on that year. Starting from the beginning of the 20th century, the intended use has been listed as a public business, then known as the "Inn at Forte del '48", helping the place to consolidate its name.
Even today, thanks to the ancient inn, the whole area is known as "Area del Forte" (The Stranglehold Area).
Recently, after an accurate overhauling process, the old inn was turned into a hotel equipped with the best comforts.  It was given the name "Hotel Forte del '48", and has been run by the De Faveri family for more than forty years now.
A hotel bearing a name persisting across time, and the distant memory of the Austrian fort of San Donà di Piave, est. 1848 ".
