The Magenta rowing team first took part in the Palio Marinaro in 1954 with the Origine team in four-men boats. It was later renamed Magenta -Origine and has obtained several good placings. In 1990, following an exciting duel with the San Jacopo team who won by a tiny margin, the team was promoted to the ten-man boats after the relegation of Borgo Cappuccini. They have since gone back to the four-men category but are still a highly competitive team.
