mask in veniceWhy did Venetians go around wearing masks for over six months a year until about two centuries ago? What is the origin of Harlequin? What kind of mask was worn by Venetian ladies in their games of seduction? And what kind by doctors during bouts of plague?
Masks in Venice once had enormous significance in social relations, to such an extent that in some cases they were made compulsory by law, and over the centuries masks makers had considerably refined their art. So many things to find out, and so amazing too! Decoration courses are divided in a theoretical part and in practical one.

transport in gondolaVenetian rowing differs from the usual style in that the oarsman stands, faces forwards and rests his oars in special oarlocks.
It is a pleasant rowing style not only because it allows you to see where you are going, but because it is extremely efficient. A recent study confirms that to transport three people plus the weight of the boat (half a ton), a gondolier consumes the same amount of energy as he does walking. Another advantage of this style is the maneuverability: the gondolier is able to carry out every manoeuvre - starting off, right-angle turns, slow or sudden stops, moving sideways or backwards - without changing his position.

dragon boating The Dragon Boat is a large canoe-style boat of Chinese origin in which up to 20 people can paddle together. The rhythm is given by a drum situated at the prow of the boat and the direction is given by a helmsman who steers the boat using a long oar.
Dragon boating is by nature a social sport requiring large numbers of people to work together. It develops strength and endurance as well as friendships. The idea of being “all together in the same boat” largely contributed to the increasing popularity of the dragon boat over the last decade and, thanks to the brilliant ideas of some multinational companies, including Ericsson, the dragon boat is now used as a principal teambuilding activity. Providing the challenge and excitement of high-level sport while at the same time accommodating all levels of abilities, the dragon boat is seen as an important contributor towards the achievement of greater professional collaboration and efficiency amongst company employees.
