For centuries Venetians have passed down the art of voga-alla-Veneta to the next generation.
Here's a pair of photos that really brings the point home.
I love how the two girls are rowing the same remo together.
But what's even better is the young boy sitting with his arms crossed, looking annoyed that the girls get to row.
Of course there are a few other family members on hand to take pictures.
And yes, there's a big Honda outboard hanging off the back of that boat, but the guy's still got forcole and remi.
A true Venetian can row just about anything.
