The trabocco or trabucco is an old fishing machine typical spread along the coast of east Italy. They are protected as historical monuments. A trabucco is a massive construction built from wood consisting of a platform anchored to the rock by large logs of pine, jutting out into the sea. From this platform, two (or more) long arms called antennae stretch out suspended some feet above the water, supporting a huge, narrow-meshed, net . The net is lowered into the water through a complex system of winches and, likewise, promptly pulled up to retrieve its catch. At least two men are entrusted with the tough task of operating the winches that maneuver the giant net. A wooden restaurant right next to the net waits for you to choose your fish and cooked for you. It is an amazing experience ,where ever you are sitting you have an amazing view of the sea.
