”I Renaioli”: 20 years of history, centuries of tradition
The “Associazione I Renaioli” was founded in 1995 to keep alive the traditional boats once used to dredge the river bed and collect the sand (renaiolo means who works with sand): the “barchetti” d’Arno. The association’s purpose is the recovery, conservation and maintenance of the barchetti; the promotion of navigation over the Arno on the barchetti; the spread of the pole rowing tradition. The historical value of the association’s activity consists of operations such as the census of all the Arno barchetti between Pontassieve and Signa, the recovery of sunken barchetti, the restoration and maintenance of the barchetti.
Over the Arno in a barchetto
The navigation on the barchetti is a service available between May and September; the navigation of the central section of the river takes about 45 minutes. The barchetto tour stars beneath the Palazzo della Borsa, following the Uffizi and corridoio vasariano under the Ponte Vecchio. With the I Renaioli – Alessi partnership the barchetto tour becomes… tasty too! Yes: you can have the legendary Alessi gourmet products for a very special Florence picnic on a barchetto.
