Italian Rowing Federation

History of FIC

Costitution

The first Italian club, the Canottieri Limite sull'Arno (Arno Rowing Club), was founded in 1861 even if the true forerunner of modern rowing in Italy remains the Canottieri Cerea which was founded in Turin two years later. The Savoy capital and the Po river were the aggregating centres of Italian rowing: it was in Turin in fact that the Italian Rowing Club was founded on 31 March 1888 and which produced the first Regatta Code. Again in Turin the Federazione Internazionale (FISA) was founded on 25 June 1892. The federation was listed in Law no. 426 of 16/2/1946 (as RFIC).

Denomination

The term “Royal” was added to original appellation of the Italian Rowing Club in 1891 (under the chairmanship of king Umberto I), while in 1923 it changed to Reale Federazione Italiana di Canottaggio (RFIC or Royal Rowing Federation of Italy). After the war the name was again changed to the current Italian Rowing Federation (FIC).
