A gorgeous water parade along the Grand Canal of historic boats with costumed figures, Gondolas and boats of the Venetian rowing associations.
The first visual image of a regatta comes somewhat later, in the View of Venice drawn by Jacopo dé Barbari in around 1500. This map includes a detail of a group of boats with the word “regata” written at the side.
Pupparin, Mascareta, Caorlina, Gondolino!
Fast boats used exclusively for the Historical Regatta, or traditional work boats, which retain their original shapes.
The Regatta has also been held… Away from home. On June 22, 1884, in fact, on the occasion of the Italian general exhibition in Turin, the Regatta was held on the River Po with the presence of 4 bissone (type of boat) and with a race of 9 gondolini in which the champions of the time took part (Zatta, Zanellato, Valesin, Corradini)
A term indicating the obligation for the racers not to attempt overtaking manoeuvres at the turn of the paleto or according to the order of the jury.
