Mestre is the centre and the most populated urban area of the mainland of Venice, part of the territory of the Metropolitan City of Venice, in Veneto, northern Italy.Administratively speaking, Mestre forms (together with the nearby urban area of Carpenedo) the Municipalità di Mestre-Carpenedo, one of the six boroughs of the commune (Comune) of Venice. Sometimes considered as a frazione, it is Italy's most populated, with 89,373 inhabitants.OverviewThe mainland of Venice is the territory of the city based on continental land connected to the historical center by a long rail and road bridge over the Venetian lagoon, called Ponte della Libertà . Since the end of World War II, Mestre had a quick and disordered urban growth, after which Mestre constitutes a vast human settlement together with the other urban centers of the Venetian mainland . Mestre being the center and the most populated area of the mainland, in common language the toponym Mestre is very often used, incorrectly, to define the whole Venetian mainland.Mestre received the title of city in 1923 and maintained it briefly till 1926, when was annexed to the commune of Venice.PopulationMestre, previously known as the quartiere 10 Mestre centro, has around 50,000 inhabitants while the Municipalità di Mestre-Carpenedo has around 90,000 inhabitants, and the whole Venetian mainland has around 170,000 inhabitants. For a comparison, there are just around 60,000 inhabitants in the historic center of Venice and just around 30,000 in the major islands of the lagoon of Venice, making a total of around 90,000 inhabitants of Venice living in the part based on islands, compared to the circa 170,000 inhabitants in the mainland.
