Museo della Marineria - Cesenatico
The Maritime Museum of Cesenatico is composed of two sections: the Floating Section, open air, and the Ground Section, inside the museum. The Floating Section, on the Leonardo’s Canal Harbour, includes the exhibition of 10 traditional boats of High and Middle Adriatic, each of them characterized by its own features. The two boats on the other side of the bridge are sailing boats allowing to know and try the ancient sailing skills. In summer, with good weather, the boats hoist their sails decorated with symbols of fishers’ families. The biggest boat is a Trabaccolo da trasporto (cargo lugger) a real small sailer used for local coastal navigation.
The Ground Section of the museum is dedicated to traditional boats: here you can see as they were built and what materials they were made of, as they were pushed, as they manoeuvred and as they disappeared when the engine boats were introduced. In central area there are two of the most typical boats of the High Adriatic dated back to the last period of sailing marine are exhibited: a trabaccolo called Cidia and a bragozzo called Vigo, both built in 1921.
The first floor of the museum is dedicated to the relationship between man and marine environment: “life on board”, fishing and linked activities, sailing technique, cultural, religious and social aspects.
