The venue is Ponte di Mezzo in June. In June, torches and candles create a canopy of lights on the evening of the Luminaria. The Regatta of the Four Ancient Maritime Republics, Pisa, Venice, Amalfi and Genoa, gathers teams representing each republic to compete in a race after a colourful boat procession.
