Holiday House Chioggia

The origins of Chioggia are found in a smoky past and full of legends that would see in a companions of Enea, Clodio, its founder following the escape after the destruction of Troy in 1300-1200 B.C. Actually, archaeological discoveries would go back the birth of Chioggia around 2000 B.C.

One of the most important stage in the history of Chioggia are the war of Chioggia that took place between 1379 and 1380, and saw opposing the Genoese forces, strengthened by the alliance with Padua and with the King of Magyars, to those of Clodio, with the expected capitulation of the latter.

In the following year, Vettor Pisani, at the head of the Venetian Fleet, defeated the Genoese in the sea and returned the Doge, Andrea Contarini, in Chioggia and finally releases the city.

Curiosity: was in this war that occured one of the first used of military rockets, called “rocchette” (reels) due to the shape that resembles that of the reels to spin.
