This exhibition dedicated to the Moro di Venezia showcases a selection of the most significant images from the great challenge undertaken by Raul Gardini to participate in the America’s Cup. This endeavor marked an important milestone for Italian sailing, leaving a legacy in both technology and personnel that is still evident today. The photos, taken by Carlo Borlenghi, who was the official team photographer at the time, were first displayed in Trieste in 2022 during the Barcolana, organized by the Società Velica di Barcola e Grignano with the support of the Fondazione Raul Gardini, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of winning the Louis Vuitton Cup challenger selection regatta. With that victory, the Moro di Venezia became the first Italian team to compete in the America’s Cup.

Carlo Borlenghi was born in 1956 in Bellano (Lake Como), where he began his photography career by covering local regattas. While still young, through his collaboration with the magazine Uomo Mare Vogue, he traveled around the world, following the most important nautical events. Since 1983, he has been photographing America’s Cup regattas, starting with Azzurra’s endeavors, the first Italian challenge. He has become the official photographer for Italy’s America’s Cup campaigns, including Il Moro di Venezia, Luna Rossa, Alinghi, and BMW. He was the official photographer for ACM (the event organizer) in Valencia in 2007. Wherever there is a major sailing regatta… Carlo is there. Photography and the sea are his life, and few people in the world have his level of experience and sensitive eye.
