In the second offical regatta in which the newly born Canottieri Lario take part
the history of the “Lario” team and the one of Villa D’Este met and gave birth
to Trofeo Villa d'Este. It was the year 1891 and during the competition, the 5th
of September, athletes wore the new black and white official body of the Canottieri Lario.
Just for the record the “Lario” team won the 1st and 2nd prize with the C2X on a distance
of 900 mts, and the 1st and 2nd prize with the six–rowers venetian launches.
Some years ago, Enzo Molteni, President of the Società Canottieri Lario, and Jean Marc Druler, President of the Hotel Villa D’Este, sharing a deep love for rowing, decided to revive the historic cup. Also this year the Trophy will be run once again.
