Giant smokestack

The giant smokestack of the now-dismissed thermoelectric factory of Porto Tolle, in the Po River delta, acts as a primary visual reference during our dolphin surveys in the NW Adriatic – especially when we are far offshore and there is nothing else in sight. The smokestack, 250 m high, is reportedly the tallest non-metallic structure of this kind in Italy.
