Training

Gozzetta Shangay-Torretta, LivornoFew days ago we showed you some empty shells pretending they were boats for some kind of race. Here is something more than our words: in mid-May the “gozzetta” of “Shangay-Torretta” (which in Italian sounds as a rhyme) is training in the “Porto Mediceo”.Gozzo Salviano, LivornoLooking back in our files we have even found an image of the “gozzo” of “Salviano” already training in March, in front of the “Terrazza Mascagni”, where the “Palio” take place.

You really capture the difference between rowing in March and rowing in July. Wonderful.

These shots sure give the picture! Looks like a lot of hard work - teamwork!

Much easier to see now the difference between the gozzi and gozzette with the rowers seated in them.

Hilda said...

I'm confused: is it gozzi or gozzo? gozzette or gozzetta?

Trillian said...

Hilda, it's easy:
1 gozzo, 2 gozzi
1 gozzetta, 2 gozzette

Hilda said...

Oh, singular and plural. Hee, I forgot about that! ;)
Thanks, Trillian!

A friend of mine who was a rower once told me it was so much fun except that now she has more muscular arms :). It is training for what event?
