Regatta of the "Lucia" boats

The "Lucia" is a typical rowing boat once used at Lake Como for transporting goods to the markets. It got famous in the well known novel written by Alessandro Manzoni “The Betrothed", playing in the Lecco area. Once these boats were made in chestnut wood but in the last century more precious wood like mahogany was used, to please the taste of the noble families.
