In 1500 Cosimo de’ Medici commissioned the Navicelli Canal to connect Pisa to the port of Livorno. The name originates from the small vessels, called Navicelli, which at the time were used to transport goods. The canal was modified on several occasions to make it deeper and wider.

The Navicelli district is one of the most important production zones in the area. The nautical sector that has developed on its shores is practically unrivalled in the Mediterranean.
While industrial, the Navicelli area is adjacent to one of the largest natural parks in Tuscany, Migliarino e San Rossore.
The opening of the Incile barrier gave the Navicelli Canal direct access to the Med, allowing it to achieve full functionality.
