A Year of Rowing Races in Livorno

One of the ten-man Gozze used in Livorno's rowing races One of the ten-man Gozze used in Livorno's rowing races Livorno’s division into ‘Rioni’ is never more heartfelt than during the city’s annual rowing races. There are three main races and several others,  eleven of them in all, beginning with the Coppa Gaetano D’Alesio (re-named the Trofeo della Liberazione in 2015) in April and ending with the Palio delle Circoscrizioni in August. The most important events are the Coppa Risiatori, Coppa Barontini (both in June) and the Palio Marinaro (in June/July).
