The Port



Molfetta's port hosts not only 116 fishing boats but is also an active center of maritime commerce. Until the 1960s it was one of the most important ports in the region of Puglia and one of the most important sources of employment for Molfettan men. They would go to sea for a week, month, or even a year at a time.

Nice photograph of the ship.

Thank you for your nice comments! I'm just an amateur photographer with a dinky little digital camera, so the encouragement means a lot to me!

This is a great shot all the way around. I love how the ship is off centered.
