The Best Answer
Answered by Francesca Maria , Rome, Italy
This year the race history of the four Maritime Republics in Amalfi will be held June 3.This race is a very evocative historical reconstruction that takes place every year in one of the ancient Maritime Republics. It 's a race of galleons, reconstructed models of the twelfth century, propelled by eight rowers and guided by a helmsman. The hulls of ships are painted the traditional colors of the four maritime cities (Amalfi: blue; Pisa: red; Genoa: white; Venice: green) and they show the castle at the stern with the flag of each republic and a figurehead on the bow.
