The Galea (galley) ship was the emblematic symbol of the Venetian Republic at the time of it's control of the luxury trade from the Far East. In 2001, a Galean wreck was discovered by Marco d'Agostino in the Venetian lagoon, at a depth of 8 meters. These historical excavations are depicted in this wide-reaching film, through which we are able to relive part of the magic of the three golden centuries of Venetian "Serenissima."
