Bucintoro

After many years seems that finally the Bucintoro reconstruction will start. Also the French President Sarkozy is interested in it.
The Bucintoro was the golden boat the Doge used (from 1200 until 1797) for the marriage of Venice to the sea the Ascension Day.

It was 35 meters long and 7 meters large, with 168 rowers and oars 10,5 meters long!
The reconstruction will cost about 5 millions of Euros.

    Great news for Venice! Do you know where one can contribute money to its restoration?

    I would like to make a donation.

    I also love your blog – please keep posting your beautiful pictures and comments.

    Grazie,

    Bridget
