The "Maròta"



The maròta or marutìna is a typical flat-bottomed well boat characterised by a full-length deck on the superior surface and by holes and gaps on the bottom and alongside the boat. According to the size of the boat, marotte served different purposes: fairly large marotte were used to transport fish for long distances while for shorter distances, from the fishing place to the pickling factory, smaller marotte or marottine were used.
These floating wells were made by the caulkers,  arts and crafts masters in the construction of boats.
