"La Signora di Pegli"

(Simone Repetto, Italian journalist, 2019)

Goleta Gringo is a 120ft schooner, built in Genoa, Italy, in 1886 and restored in Argentina in 1990. She is one of the oldest sailboats still sailing

We are the Zuccaro family and we are now sailing her back from South America to Europe. Can you imagine a 137 year old schooner crossing the Atlantic ocean?

WATCH THE CAPTAIN!

Fernando, the owner and captain of
Goleta Gringo

In this video, recorded by Rodrigo Gomes (instagram.com/rodgomes_), Fernando shares part of the history behind Goleta Gringo and talks about living aboard one of the oldest sailboats in the world

In this video, Fernando was interviewed by a group of school students when he was restoring the sailboat. 
Mr Fausto Bragagna, the oldest surviving sailor, visited him and also appears in this video. It is an invaluable treasure...

LISTEN TO THE CAPTAIN !

A sailboat, a legendary story: it is called Schooner Gringo, it was launched in Genoa in 1886, it adventurously crossed the Atlantic transporting goods and Italian migrants heading to Argentina. Abandoned on a river bank, it was recovered and restored by Fernando Zuccaro in 1990. Now, this brave Italian-Argentine navigator wants to bring it back to Genoa. His story, on Radio di Bordo, is also intertwined with the celebrations, which have just begun, for the 150 years of Italian emigration to Brazil.
