The Regata Storica is the main event in the annual “Voga alla Veneta” rowing calendar.
The Regata Storica as we know it now, with its commemorative cortege acting as a prelude to the competitions, was conceived at the end of the 19th century for the 3rd Biennale d’Arte as a way of offering another tourist attraction.
Scores of typically 16th century-style boats with gondoliers in period costume carry the Doge, the Queen of Cipro and all the highest ranking Venetian officials up the Grand Canal in a brightly coloured parade. An unforgettable sight and a true reconstruction of the glorious past of one of most the powerful and influential Maritime Republics in the Mediterranean.
