After the fall of the Roman Republic in 1849, Giuseppe Garibaldi stopped in Terni, Todi, Orvieto, San Marino and arrived in Cesenatico on the 2nd August, where he embarked on 13 boats (bragozzi) with 250 men, determined to reach Venice.
Intercepted by the Austrians, he was forced to land 8km away from Magnavacca (today Porto Garibaldi). So began the "trafila garibaldina" (Garibaldi's journey) which brought him to this hut after several stops. From this place, he passed then at Savio, Ravenna and finally at Forlì by following the via Ravegnana. He was guided by Don Giovanni to Tuscany and Genoa in order to escape from the Austrians.
The hut was built in 1810 for hunting purposes, destroyed by fire in 1911 and then accurately rebuilt thanks to the Conservative Society of the Garibaldi's Hut which holds it since 1882.
Every day (closed on Monday and Friday): 9.30am - 6pm
July and August: 2pm - 7pm

The hut is located at a 8km distance from Ravenna. It can be reached by driving through Via Romea Nord, following the signs for Porto Corsini and Marina di Ravenna. The hut is 200m away from the road sign "Capanno Garibaldi".
