Photographer's Note

Porto RomanornrnThe Roman port of Ventotene is the result of a major excavation of artificial tuff bank degraded to the sea, from which they were removed 60,000 cubic meters: it came out of a deep basin on average three meters completely surrounded, and thus protected from the rock .rnThe mouth of the harbor, facing East, allows access even in bad weather conditions with winds of Maestrale and Libeccio; the internal shape of the pelvis, parallel to the coastline from North to South, offers a very valuable protection against all winds; only the strong winds from the SE result in a slight undertow.rnSince cargo ships exclusively used the square sail and not the oars, it is likely that large cleats, still visible at the mouth of the harbor, serve as well as to bar access with the help of chains (probably housed in a rear small cave dug in the tuff) also to facilitate the entry in case of need, thanks to the aid of trawl peaks to ground.r
