Venice: Anyone who does not row is an outsider

We practice rowing on a Venetian gondola.

In Venice, where everything is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, including the city, lagoon, and islands, rowing is an identity gesture, a collective vocation, and a way to celebrate the environment.

Venetians learn to row at a young age and use rowing clubs as social gathering places. In Murano, Patrizio Roversi takes rowing lessons aboard a gondola from Davide Prevedello, a champion who has competed in the historic regatta 11 times!

A Venetian gondola, on the other hand, is 11 meters long, 1.40 meters wide, and weighs more than 500 kg… Patrizio’s first lesson is already in keeping his balance.
