Historical Regatta is the most important and known regatta in Venice. It’s held every year the first Sunday of September, and this year will be the 6th!!! The actual event was born in 1841 when the Venice and the Venetians asked the permission to the Austrian authorities (at that time Venice was Austrian!!!) to organize a race through the Grand Canal. They wanted to keep trained and “alive” the honor and strength of the gondoliers. Starting from 1866, the Regatta became also a celebration of the past Serenissima Republic. And in 1899 became finally the HISTORICAL Regatta.
