Regata Storica 2020

Regata Storica 2020

The Historical Regatta is the main appointment in the annual calendar of “Voga alla Veneta” races, a discipline unique in the world practiced for thousands of years in the Venice lagoon. Today it is made even more spectacular by the famous historical procession that precedes the races: a parade of dozens and dozens of typical 16th century boats, multicolored and with gondoliers in costume, carrying the doge, the dogaressa and all the highest offices of the Venetian Magistracy, in a faithful reconstruction of the glorious past of one of the most powerful and influential Maritime Republics in the Mediterranean. Today the four competitions are subdivided by age category and type of boat: the most famous and exciting is the regatta of the champions on gondolas, which race along the Grand Canal to the finish line in front of the famous “machina”, a spectacular floating stage in front of the Ca’ Foscari Palace.
