Rivoli Veronese Fort

Rivoli Veronese Fort

Via Traversa Castello, 37010, Rivoli Veronese, VR


Fort Wohlgemuth – also known as “Forte Rivoli” – sits atop a hill in Rivoli Veronese, east of the lake shore. It is named after an Austrian general who excelled during the 1848 campaign.

The construction dates back to the middle of the 19th century, when the fort, made from local building stone and brick, was built to protect the area’s lines of communication. The main body houses two cylindrical casemates, placed on top of each other, in which 17 cannon were stored.

The fort is the seat of the Walter Rama museum. It is dedicated to military history and presents documents and finds from the fort’s martial past – with an area on the First World War – as well as uniforms and collar badges, while different cannon are on display in the outdoor area.

Fort Wohlgemuth can be reached on foot without difficulty from the centre of Rivoli, where visitors can leave their car. It is open on Sundays from 2:30 to 6:30 pm and, on request, on other days for groups.
