  1. Thanks for the wonderful visual of the Historical Regata in action. If I were in Venice, the first week in September, I would attend this annual event. They appear to be rowing with such precision and all of thier attire is spectualar. I loved hearing the crowds cheering in the background along with the church bells. It really gave you a sense of the pride people take in events; such as, this one.

    I looked into the background of the Historical Regatta and found out the first official event took place back in 1899 with Mayor Count Filippo Grimani. I also enjoyed learning about the reason behind having a fleet of bissone's. It must of been and still is quite the honor to participate in this event. I wonder how many generations do this annual as a family tradition?
