The Austro-Hungarian Fort Geschwent was built under the leadership of Lieutenant Rudolf Schneider in the four years 1908-1912 and had the task of defending Trento in a particularly sensitive area of possible Italian attacks.

Although exposed by the heavy bombardment of the Italian artillery placed at Porta Manazzo, Campolongo and Campomolon, it was able to withstand all damage: once the bombardment ceased, the soldiers of the fortress were immediately available to repair all damages.
