Palio del Golfo


August 4, in La Spezia

“Palio del Golfo” of La Spezia is coming: the event takes place every year on the first Sunday of August in the waters off the promenade of the city of La Spezia. The rowing contest between 13 boats similar to the national goiter but handmade by local artisans with unique features that make them more agile and fast.

The Palio is born probably from impromptu games between the crews of boats loaded with fish or the ancient “black gold” of the Gulf of La Spezia: mussels or “muscles” as they are better known in the whole of the Gulf.

Major challenges as the victory was not then a sporting victory but could not afford the priority of unloading at the quay of the catch or the product transported, thereby increasing the possibility of gain or while still allowing you to enjoy with a little advance well-earned rest.

Even today, the event is lived with passion by all citizens and especially by the inhabitants of the modern districts or townships renowned Countries – overlooking the sea in Portovenere, Le Grazie, Fezzano, Cadimare, Marola, CRDD, Canaletto, Fossamastra, Muggiano San Terenzo, Venere Azzurra, Lerici and Tellar.
