1957: Water Polo into the port of Camogli

Water Polo match of “Rari Nantes Camogli” in the small port of Camogli, on 1957, the year that R.N. Camogli won its last Championship.
Camogli is a small fishing village located in the province of Genoa on the Italian Riviera. The name has a double meaning in Italian. The first translation: "houses close together," is apparent when you stroll through the town's narrow streets, which are lined by tall columns of pastel-colored homes. The second meaning:"houses of wives," is not so obvious; it refers to the fishermen's wives, who traditionally spent their time at home while their husbands were out at sea.
