THE STORY


At the beginning of the last century, Isola Sacra was one of the largest (127.39,89 hectares), more abandoned and more unhealthy estates of the Roman countryside, consisting of that strip of coastline enclosed between the last course of the Tiber, the navigable channel of Fiumicino and the sea itself. Owned by the Marchesa Elena Guglielmi in Mannucci, the Opera was invited by the Land Reclamation Administration to intervene and promote its expropriation, despite the owner’s fierce opposition. The Opera took final possession of it in June 1920, verifying that the attempts of state reclamation undertaken previously had been found against the more constant hostility of the owners. Numerous marshes and meadows remained for grazing.
