Bringing the Serenissima home

Posted on | September 6, 2008 | No Comments

This Saturday afternoon, the 50-year-old Serenissima will be transferred from Burano back to its home in the Arsenale, just in time to perform its lead role in Sunday’s Regata Storica. In fact, a crew of 18 women will propel the craft for the first time in the festival’s history.

The amazing, expert, one-week restoration carried out by Cantiere Amadi of Burano was necessary after the craft was found submerged on June 2.
