The Fort is named after the Monte Ricco on which it stands and that already had a defensive role in pre-Roman times. In the Early Middle Ages, it was occupied by a castle, whose tower, with that of Botestagno, features in the Cadore coat of arms. In 1420 the castle housed the Captain sent from Venice and its fate became that of the Serenissima. The Reign of Italy had two fortifications built: Castello Battery and the Fort, including them in the defensive system against the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In 1918 after Caporetto they were blown up by the Austrian army. In 2007 the Municipality of Pieve undertook their restoration, completed in 2017 in collaboration with the Fine Arts and Landscape Office and thanks to the significant sponsorship of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio of Verona, Vicenza, Belluno, and Ancona.
