The Municipalità di Marghera, one of the six boroughs of Venice's comune, includes 30,000 inhabitants (Marghera alone includes 17,000 inhabitants).
Marghera appeared in 1920, when a part of the town of Mestre (now also a frazione of Venice) was destined for the construction of a commercial and industrial port, as well as of a residential area for its workers. The Enichem fertilizer company operates in Marghera. The name "Marghera", comes from the fact that the area where the present city was built, was once a marine swamp. In the Venetian dialect, in fact, "Mar gh' era" means "There was the sea".
