The last boatman of Venice’s inland waterways

This video interview to Riccardo Cappellozza (1935-2020), the “last boatman” of Venetian inland waterways, recalls the fluvial trade which was characterizing a great number of rivers and navigable canals located in Venice’s hinterland until the 1950s. A unique network of waterways which can be used today by residents and visitors for new recreational practices, but also as an important asset for ecosystem regeneration as set by the SDGs – Sustainable Development Goals.
