Altitude 2 m. 40,000 inhabitants

Seaside resort founded in 1890 after the railroad link Rome-Civitavecchia was open

It was founded by the will of Prince Ladislao Odescalchi, after whom it was named

It had one of the greatest increases in population among all Italian cities in the postwar period

Between 1977 and 1991 here stayed temporarily about 150,000 Russian Jews waiting to be admitted to Canada, Australia and USA

The average Russian Jews population in Ladispoli at any given time was about 10,000 constituting a major impact for the town from an anthropological point of view

Monumento Naturale di Torre Flavia

Natural monument of the Flavian Tower

50 hectares (124 acres). Established in 1997

Remains of a TOWER of the sixteenth century erected by Cardinal Flavio Corsini at the behest of Leo X Medici (1513/21) on the ruins of an ancient watchtower of the tenth century built to sight the Saracens, in turn built on ancient remains possibly belonging to a Roman villa

It was ruined by erosion and by the bombing of the Allied Forces during World War Two

In 1985 the wreck of a Roman cargo ship was brought to light. It provided an opportunity for creating one of the few underwater archaeological parks in the Mediterranean
