It may or not be a record, and to be honest, I'm not sure what the symbolism is here.
I just know that it's the biggest sock I've ever seen.
Nereo sent me this shot, taken during the Regata delle Befane.
My guess is that the giant stocking draped over the side of the Rialto, is like those hung over the chimney at Christmas time, and that the Befane might be bound by tradition to place treats or gifts in it.
That is one big sock.
