The Quercianella coloursAlthough not strictly part of Livorno itself, the small seaside village of Quercianella has been participating in Livorno’s rowing races with its own team since 1973.
Quercianella was originally an Etruscan settlement. However, the village grew up as a seaside resort at the beginning of the 1900s. It was well-known for attracting famous show-business names, and continued to grow in popularity with the construction of the railway connecting Rome and Genoa, which still runs through the village. Today there are about 2000 inhabitants.
