Regata Storica 2016
The traditional Regata Storica is an annual event which is held on the first Sunday of September.
The Regata Storica is the most important and most spectacular of the Venetian regattas and it takes place along the Grand Canal.
Originally, the event celebrated military victories or honoured foreign dignitaries visiting the Serenissima. Since recent times, it has also commemorated the glory of the past of the Maritime Republic of Venice and the beginning of the Serenissima rule over the Mediterranean islands, marked by the abdication of Caterina Cornaro, Queen of Cyprus, coming to Venice.
Today, the Regata Storica entertains the visitors with a race and a historical pageant on 16th-century-style boats with rowers in traditional period costumes.
