A magical walk through Borgomarina, the historic fishing village of Cervia, to discover the history and traditions of sailors through the stories of men and women who lived in close contact with the sea.
The meeting place for tour participants is in front of the San Michele Tower in Cervia.
After a brief introduction of a historical nature on the seafaring of Cervia, the walk will continue along the canal port where you can admire the fishing village, with its typical terraced houses and lighthouse dating back to 1875. After visiting the fishermen's monument next to the fish market, the traditional fishing techniques will be illustrated.
The initiative will continue with a visit to the Fishermen's Club, the former home of the wholesale fish market, which is now a meeting place and a place for the preservation of maritime traditions; here you can see some testimonies such as photos, objects and ceramic reproductions of traditional sails whose colors and designs were once possible to recognize the captains and crews.
The walk will end with an aperitif with the fishermen cheered by music and songs that flow spontaneously with wine and excellent fish. The protagonist will be the group of singers of the Fishermen's Club, the "Trapozal".
