The Museum of the Southern Lagoon "San Francesco outside the walls"
The Museum is located in the former Convent of San Francesco outside the walls. The first building dates back to 1315 and the second, after its destruction during the war between Venice and Genoa (1378 -1381), in 1434. In 1806 the monastery was deconsecrated and since then has held a number of functions: in 1808 becomes a military warehouse. At the end of World War I (1915-1918) is divided into two floors. It was a shop selling fruit and vegetables and in the post-war period became a refuge for the homeless. Finally, until a few decades ago it was a garage for local buses.
