The Vogalonga: This annual event is described as “an act for love for Venice and the water that surrounds it, for its lagoon and its islands, for rowing and its boats and maintained over time the purpose for which it is born: raise awareness and conscious respect for nature and the culture of our city”. To make it clear: the Vogalonga is a traditional rowing regatta where everybody – as long as in charge of a boat – can participate. The race is advertised as non-competitive with the simple aim of honoring the city’s tradition and background.
