logo Gran Fondo del Naviglio“The Gran Fondo del Navliglio is rich in history and dates back to old Milan when the first water polo team was celebrated in the city (1895). The canal is now suitable for swimming and is the stage of an event that, as in times gone by, follows the currents of the fresh water of the Ticino that flow as far as Darsena di Milano.” – cit. Tommaso Reverdini
