Marcon

Description

The town's name derives the Latin name Marcus. Municipality in the province of Venice, Marcon is located on a completely flat plain, washed by canals and other waterways.
Although there are no clear traces of the presence of the Roman Empire, the conformation of the center's main roads and its proximity to Altino, allow historians to attest that the area was under the positive influence of Rome. The first historical document, that refers to the town of Marcon, dates back to year 1000: it is an act of donation by the Bishop of Treviso to the Benedictines of Mogliano, who administered the territory until the XV century. The area was characterized by the dense presence of woods and ponds and for this reason was unattractive for a long period and scarcely populated. Morcon, like most of the other localities of the province of Venice, was conquered by French troops led by Napoleon in 1807 and was proclaimed municipality. Under the Habsburg rule, the centre was merged with the nearby one of Mogliano and regained its independence only in 1818.
