    (ANSAmed) - Venice, June 25 - The Venice Boat Show has successfully wrapped up after registering a total of 27,000 visitors over five days. The international fair event, whose motto was ''The naval art comes home'', proved to be a major attraction.

    And Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro said his administration has already financed the show for another two years.

    ''Venice is once again the 'queen of the seas' in the widest possible cultural sense'', he said.

    ''We have shown our ability in design and the architecture of construction, also recuperating traditional activities''.

    ''The administration has already funded the Show for two more years - we don't want it to be an extemporaneous event'', the mayor explained. Culture was an integral part of the show in the waters of the Arsenal, which was scheduled to coincide with the 2019 Venice Art Biennale, with shows and cultural events focusing on civilizations of the sea.

    Overall, 43 meetings on various aspects of navigation - from the environment to sustainability and yacht design - were held during the event, along with eight exhibits focusing on navigation, the sea and transportation.

    Brugnaro said the objective is to make the event a permanent one. (ANSAmed)
