The Naviglio is the ancient natural bed of the Brenta river, before the massive hydraulic changes made by the Republic of Venice (which required Leonardo Da Vinci's engineering consultancy several times) and then up to the twentieth century diverted the main course further south, moving it away from the Venetian lagoon and leading it to flow directly into the Adriatic Sea. These hydraulic works are represented by the cuts of the Brenta Nuova and Brenta Nuovissima, and consist of locks and mobile bridges that have made the river navigable.
