Florence, - (Adnkronos) - Back, January 1, the traditional ritual dip nell'Arno to celebrate the new year: it will be, as always, the chairman of the council Eugenio Giani the first to dive from riverbed adjacent to the company Rowing Florence , around 11:30 am. At 10.30 instead we will be racing the boats of Florence Rowing, Rowing Club of municipal and Dragon Boat. Admission is free.
'' Even in 2014 - said the President Giani - renew this ritual that has been going on for a few years along with the pleasure of sharing the sport with the first public demonstration of the city. I appeal to all Florentines, sporting or otherwise, to participate.'' '' Always - added Giani - Arno dip called for a clean and bathing as it was until the seventies, when it was tradition to learn to swim in the pools but not so much in the 'Arno silver. This perspective is not so far away because with the realization on the part of the left bank of the effluent Publiacqua much of the sewer system will not download more in the waters of the Arno but will be channeled for the purification in St. Columban. The dip is meant to be then a call attention to the values of the environment and sustainable city.''
