Rievocazione storica “scafa sul Tevere” (Historical reenactment of the small boat that used to cross the Tiber river in Rome)
Photograph of a group of people with paddles in a kayak on a river.
In the absence of bridges, it was possible, in the past, to cross rivers (favoring socialization, gatherings and trade) thanks to small crafts. These, in central Italy, were named “scafe”. In particular, south of the city of Rome they were quite common also in the recent past. Still nowadays it is difficult for walkers and bikers to cross the Tiber river form one bank to the other. For this reason for one day, thank to a small paddle craft, it will be possible to cross the river, also carrying bicycles.
