The Hamlet of Malamocco has been one of the first populated areas of the lagoon. The name firstly was Metamauco and it was a little part of territory where started to live settlers coming from Padua which was destroyed by the Longobard people in 600 a.C. In 742, thanks to its strategic position, Metamauco became the Venetian episcopal seat, where stayed also the Doge. Some years later, due to the fight with the French Pipino, the seat has been moved in a safer area of the lagoon, choosing the Rivo Alto island (where today there is the Rialto Bridge): in this way born Venice.
14th EMN Annual Conference 22nd - 23rd June 2017, Venice
The European Microfinance Network's 14th Annual Conference will take place in Venice, on the Isola di San Servolo, from 22nd - 23rd June. EMN has organized accommodation options for participants on the Lido Island, which lies opposite San Servolo.
One of the most famous Venetian tradition that is transmitted from many centuries is that one of venetian rowing, a sport that is still practiced and see many participants at the regattas. The most spectacular ones are the Regata Storica, that occurs every year on the first Sunday of September and the Vogalonga world-wide famous and with a significant history for the city.
To visit the northernmost area of the island, called San Nicolò, I suggest you to rent a bicycle and to explore it with eyes ready to capture the details of the houses in the typical Lido's Liberty style which characterize them. Its famous coastline is 3 kilometres long and with a magical view on Saint Mark’s Square, this part of the island has a lot of historic places to be visited and many others immersed in the green of the nature to be discovered.
In a magical place between the sea and the lagoon, in the southern end of Lido island, there is one of the most particular golf course in the world. The Golf Club Venezia hosted golf games for almost 90 years, beginning its history on 1928, as one of the first Italian and, still, the only Venetian golf course.
Bike is the best way to enjoy the Lido: the island is one of the fewest in the lagoon to have not only canals but also low-traffic streets where it’s easy to ride. This is an easy 15 km scenic tour, perfect for the spring sunny days and to discover the best views from our island. The itinerary starts at S.M. Elisabetta, the arrival point from Venice, but as it is a circular tour it can be started from anywhere in the northern-central part of the Lido.

Don’t be fooled by the black and white photos, neither by the melancholy feelings that gives the sea during the cold season: “The Winter Sea Really Exists” wants to show exactly the opposite, how does the life along the seashore continues all along the greyer months of the year. The chilly air awakens the senses and makes the cheeks blush, the beach is full of life with people running, having a walk and flying kytes, the sea water lashes and the bravest ones take a bath or, at least, dip a foot in the cold water.
