Navigating the lagoon, rowing in the ghebi, in the canals of the islands, in the canals of Venice takes shape in the image of the oar entering the water, of the blade that slides on the surface and then comes out creating a small vortex, the bovolo.

They have always been the same movements, synchronism and agility that are expressed in a few simple moves repeated by generations of rowers, repeated so often that even the fish, looking up towards the surface, would certainly be able to recognize the Venetian rowing technique.
