Canottieri Lario Lake Como

The Canottieri Lario rowing club, founded in Como by a group of 17 rowing enthusiasts in the late nineteenth century on viale Puecher, designed and built in 1931 by the engineer Gianni Mantero, is one of Lario’s most famous monuments of Rationalism. Its low and essential facade is finely positioned between the Sinigaglia Stadium and the Terragni War Memorial.
The club is named after its most famous son, Giuseppe Sinigaglia, winner of the world championship in Henley, England in 1914, who died heroically on the Karts Plateau in August 1916, just a few days after the death of another Lario champion, Teodoro Mariani.

Thanks to the arrival of Daniele Gilardoni, since 2001 the Canottieri di Como was named world champion for seven consecutive years. Gilardoni won seven titles for the “quad lightweights”, an absolute title in the “quad with” thanks to Stefano Introzzi and Edoardo Verzotti in 2004 and a title, in 2005 in the “four without” Juniors category won by Claudia Wurzel, the first woman in the more than one-hundred year history of Lario to win the iris. Standing behind such a strong and qualified team made up by about 75 athletes divided into various categories is one of the most prosperous and successful youth programmes in Italy. Each year Canottieri Lario offers rowing courses for beginners.
The club also includes a swimming pool, a lovely solarium and the restaurant on Lake Como. The building has been updated in terms of both its sporting facilities and its structure.
Both athletes and members can take advantage of the club’s large fleet of racing yachts as well as historic boats and pleasure crafts including the “Lucia”, which is typical of Lake Como.
