The fishermen’s house
A structuring tool at the service of a profession
A casa di i Piscaiù, inaugurated on June 2, 2016, the day of the fishermen’s patron saint’s day, reflects the municipality’s desire to reaffirm the importance of fishing in Bonifacio’s DNA. After 15 months of work, this project is the result of consultation with the Prud’homie de Bonifacio and all the financial partners involved.
The major development works of the Port undertaken between 2012 and 2013 have led to the modification of the water body and the requalification of the historic district of Saint Erasmus, dedicated for centuries to fishing activities. It seemed appropriate to make a success of the appropriation by this profession on this new site located at Orto Duzzi, better adapted to today’s fishing activities.
