Basso Po


BASSO PO   Bas-Po.

A Department in the Napoleonic Kingdom of  Italy, in the region of the delta of the Po, combining a former part of the Papal States (principal town, Ferrara), which had been in the Cisalpine Republic from 1797, together with land annexed in 1805 from Austria (principal town, Rovigo), which had been in the Venetian Republic until 1797.  After the fall of Napoleon the lands reverted to the Papacy and to Austria.
