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 .

 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 .
