The Zignago Industrial Group was founded in the ‘30s by Count Gaetano Marzotto, an entrepreneur who was head of the Valdagno (VI) textile group set up in the 19th century by his grandfather Luigi. Count Marzotto acquired an estate of over 1,000 hectares in the area of Villanova, a hamlet in the municipality of Fossalta di Portogruaro. Here the new agricultural centre gave an enormous impetus to the local Fossalta productive framework, managing companies according to the model of the social town of Valdagno, creating homes for workers, a nursery school, a hotel, a park, two tennis courts, a boules court, a skating rink, a Carabinieri barracks, a hospital and a textiles school. The Marzotto family are still the owners of Zignago Santa Margherita Industries today, including a glassworks, flax mill and wineries in Villanova.

This was built around the mid-12th century and was once called Porta del Bando and then Porta S. Lazzaro (St. Lazarus’ Gate) after the lepers’ 
hospice of the same name, which was built in 1203 on what is now via Zappetti. It was restored in 1555-56 by podestà Girolamo Zorzi, as the inscription above the gate recalls.

Details
The arch, which was rebuilt in 2014 after years of relative abandonment, is known as the Arco del Fondaco “de’ Todeschi” and represents Portogruaro’s commercial vocation and, in general, the town’s fundamental role at the time of the Venetian Republic. The original building had three naves divided into two courtyards and was located in the San Giovanni area. The Arco del Fondaco is made of large blocks of Istrian stone, surmounted by a trabeation with the lion of St. Mark in the centre. In 2014 it was restored to its ancient splendour and placed in Piazza Marinetti, in one of the historic entrances to the town.

Excavation in Concordia began in the last century. A Roman bridge was found under the town and a 4th-5th century B.C. burial ground known as the soldier’s burial ground was discovered on the left of the River Lemene.
In 1983 remains of the Baths were brought to light and, in the square in front of the cathedral, remains were discovered of homes with drains and floors, as well as a part of the Decumanus Maximus, the main street of the town.
The via dei Pozzi Romani (a side street of via S.Pietro) saw the discovery of two Roman wells.

The enchanting effects of the lighthouse

The lighthouse is steeped in a poetic sense of nostalgia and the sight of it alone is enough to have an impact on your overall impression of the town.

From the sea, the tall white tower can easily be picked out against the backdrop of the trees as it stands out brightly on the beach. While it no longer serves its former purpose, it is bursting with vibrant historical appeal and continues to fascinate the many visitors who come to Bibione every year.

The lighthouse was built near the mouth of the Tagliamento River in the early 20th century. Once a navigational aid for those at sea, it has now been transformed into a place where holidaymakers from afar can gather.

The house next to the lighthouse is now used as a venue for art exhibitions, music events, high-calibre environmental studies, conventions and conferences. There are cycle and pedestrian paths to both the South and the North of the lighthouse, so cyclists often stop to take a break and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. It’s a great place to walk your dog and some people come here every day simply to admire the breathtaking landscape and savour the natural wonders all around.

We mustn’t forget…
…the natural marvels all around the lighthouse! The area combines a number of different habitats. Thanks to the nearby river, typical Mediterranean plants grow alongside Alpine flora and orchids in a perfectly balanced environment.

Transfer service for people who have mobility issues
From June to September, there’s a transfer service to Bibione lighthouse for people who have mobility issues. It departs from the local council office at 84 Via Maja. The service is free and it must be booked in advance.
