LocationAlps, Italy

The Vajont Dam is a disused dam in northern Italy. It is one of the tallest dams in the world, with a height of 262 m.

It is situated in the valley of the Vajont River under Monte Toc, in the municipality of Erto e Casso, 100 kilometres north of Venice.

The dam was conceived in the 1920s and eventually built between 1957 and 1960 by Società Adriatica di Elettricità, at the time the electricity supply and distribution monopoly in northeastern Italy. In 1962 the dam was nationalized and came under the control of ENEL as part of the Italian Ministry for Public Works. The engineer was Carlo Semenza.
