Leonardo da Vinci was a "Port Harbour" of September 6, 1502 at 15 o'clock, as he himself noted in his travel notebook, known as Codex L. The same manuscript contains a drawing taken from the ancient fortress of Cesenatico (lost in World War II), and especially the importance of the port channel, accompanied by precise measurements. Leonardo took special note of the lengths of the various sections of the canal and were carefully designed piers guardians. The study of Leonardo is therefore a key moment in the history of the town, further evidence of the crucial importance of the port channel for the life of his city and its region. Today, the oldest and most characteristic of the canal houses the Museum of the Marine Float. In section float are the prototypes of the boats from the top and middle Adriatic, with their colorful sails to third, who frequented the port of Cesenatico after the disappearance of the lateen sail, and before the advent of motorization. In the adjacent section to the ground, exposed the remains of the navy, the tools to use and demonstrates techniques of construction of the hulls and those used for the different types of fishing. Cesenatico today, with its docks and veins of water is also an important center for modern yachting.
