Q: what happened to the themes and the challenges?

A: Do you know?

The "burci" were the boats that, in the last century, carried the goods on the navigable rivers of the Veneto. With the arrival of the railroad, they became useless and were completely abandoned, thus forming the cemetry of the "burci".
Today the carcasses of these long boats attest to a time that is gone.
