Red Regatta is an independent public art project created by artist Melissa McGill that will activate Venice’s lagoon and canals with large-scale regattas of traditional vela al terzo sailboats hoisted with hand-painted red sails. Presented in collaboration with Associazione Vela al Terzo and co-organized by Magazzino Italian Art. Curated by Chiara Spangaro and project management by Marcella Ferrari. With support from Mazzoleni.
