Description

The Briccola (in Venetian “Bricoła”) is a nautical structure used to indicate the waterways (canals) in the lagoons of Venice, Marano and Grado. It is made up of two or more large poles of larch, oak, or chestnut wood tied together and placed in the water, driven into the seabed.

In the lagoon area, the Briccola differs from the pole in its shape (it has more poles while the pałina has a single pole) and in its function (it is mainly an indicator of the way while the pałina is used for mooring boats). Its purpose is to signal to the boatsthe limit of the deepest part of the lagoon, which can be navigated without risk, guiding them on their path and avoiding them being stranded in areas of shallow water. Signs or directions indicating directions can be installed on the Briccole.

Bricole and poles are replaced every 7/8 years since “teredini”, sea worms, eat the wood underwater, leaving holes in the pole. The Venice Water Authority certifies the sale by stamping the lot that is sold and subsequently sanitized.
