Traditional working boats of Italy’s inland waterways

Happily, Italy has an association that records the country’s inland traditional boats, cares for them and builds them.

Some of the boats are recognisable flat-bottomed turf boats as you might expect – but others are strange and wonderful.

My thanks to reader Justin Ford for finding this one!
