Fort Carpenedo

Inside the central traverse (on the left) the fort's command was housed, along with the offices, the officers' apartments, the infirmary and the lavatories. this upper part was trasformed in 1910 to provide six well posts, more effective having the possibility of a shooting range of 360 degrees.
The traverse, like the fort, is covered with a metal net (the faraday cage) which is a lightning conductor protecting the entire fort after its transformation into a munition store after the first World War.
