The history of the tiranti (lit. “tugger”) is intertwined with that of the rivers, streams and lagoons of the Veneto region.
For centuries, the tiranti and barcari have circulated goods and people from every corner of the world throughout the Veneto, becoming the connective tissue of the land of rivers.
By turning this ancient craft into a traditional sport, we tiratori di burci (li. “tugger of burci”) want to bring to light the stories and memories of the women, men and riverbanks, which played for such a long time the role of the center and the true engine of our world.
