The Bisse regatta is a traditional race that takes place every year since 1967 on Lake Garda, in which historic boats dating back to the era of the Venetian Republic take part.
Le Bisse are evolutions of flat-bottomed fishing floats with Venetian rowing and are over 10 meters long.
Above these boats four boys compete in a league organized by the League of Bisse held between June and August and the winners are given the trophy the flag of the lake.
Finally, the best rowers are given the honor of parading in Venice on the Grand Canal, on the occasion of the Historical Regatta.
