Amadi Vittorio, post-war boat used by the post office built entirely of wood. An ancient piece of Venetian naval art history.
Vittorio Amadi, his name is inextricably linked to shipbuilding. A precursor, given that he was the first to introduce marine plywood into the Burano shipyards and to update the old lines of transport boats to meet new needs. Born in 1929, a master shipwright and son of an artist (his father Giovanni had worked for Gabriele D’Annunzio while his brothers Agostino and Achille are also well-known shipwrights), in 1956 he founded the Cantieri Amadi Vittorio snc in Burano , Where he lived.
The Region awarded him the title of “shipwright” and the Port Authority included him in the roll of honor of shipwrights. Over the years, all types of traditional Venetian boats have emerged from his shipyard: from the “topi” transport to the “caorline”, from the “bragozzi” to the “sandoli”, up to the “pupparini”. The Municipality had also purchased some boats for regattas.
