Wonderful Restoration of Traditional Venetian Boat



On 8 March, after being carefully restored, the historic Trabaccolo, “Il Nuovo Trionfo” was launched in Chioggia.
A Trabaccolo is an Adriatic Sea sailing coaster; a typical Venetian boat that dates back to the first half of the 15th century. The restoration was carried out by the Association “Il Nuovo Trionfo” which was founded with the aim to buy and restore the historic Trabaccolo of the same name and to promote the foundation of a National Museum of Venetian Maritime History. Principally the main parts of the hull, the bow and the stern were restored and all the works were adequately documented. A laser scanning of the boat was also made.
