Porto Di Livorno - Livorno Harbour, Old "Navicelli"
Apr 12, 2006

In the centre of the Port of Livorno is the Old "Navicello", used for the transport and unloading of goods. It was salvaged from the "Venezia Nuova Canal" Il Livorno by the "Azienda Mezzi Meccanici" in 1985. It was been restored and placed here in 1992, beside the Ex "Darsena Maritima" in memory of the Boathen and Caulkers who worked so hard in the port for 4 centuries.

The boats now need further restoration and the photographs of the Old Port need cleaning up terribly. I doubt many people actually see this exhibit.
