Do you know what a regatta is ?

The term is of Venetian origin and originally meant only competitions between typical Venetian boats .

the name comes from the ancient race " rifled " ( alignment " in line " at the start  of the race ) today the competitions are actually called ‘ regatta’ .

These races take place today in the Venetian lagoon  involving the historic centre as well as its islands .

Each island is known  by its race. Initially via  the art of racing the rower is crediting his  territory . Today the champion rower  in the  races identifies with  the culture , art , history , the origin of his island or area.

The races take place using  typical Venetian historical boats that have their own history, for example : the mascareta is the typical boat rowed generally  by women , because it is light and easily manoeuvrable , the name is derived from the  word "mask"  the reason being is that they wore a mask to cover the face so that they were not recognised  when crossing the canal.

Further information
Understanding Venice from the water helps you to   become protagonists in the current time  reinventing the ancient gesture of rowing technique .

The Venetian rowing has antique origins linked to folk festivals since the thirteenth century and has always involved citizens of Venice  and strangers .

In ancient waterways were essential for the residents but also a challenge between boatmen and gondoliers reaching the  maximum with the most significant event in the city  : The Historical Regatta

Through the attachment  of Venice to the Kingdom of Italy , the races became the celebration of the glorious past of the Venetian Republic .

In 1899, with a proposal from the mayor of Venice , Count Filippo Grimani  the regatta added  the ‘history’ – Storica. .  Up until now l the rowing season involves all the islands and each island has its own race ( regatta)  and its champion .

Each event has its own Venetian water parade since the year one thousand .

The lagoon area features  treasures of inestimable historical value , islands that have  disappeared once a testimony of history and culture , this side Venice is often unknown to both the resident of the city  and tourists .

The Polisportiva  Venexiana with a champion rower at the helm  , wants to make  this territory known by  :

 Using the technique of Venetian rowing to pass on the tradition of conservation and the lagoon ecosystem ;

• promote starting from ancient gestures of Venetian rowing ,ecological tourism to help environmental protection and the ‘civitas’ Venetian ;

• to understand the beauty and exclusivity of Venice and its lagoon islands observing this through culture and traditional  oar movements that areuniquely Venetian .
