For the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Alessandro Manzoni, Italy issued in 1923 a set of stamps. Some images of the stamps are from the famous historical novel The Betrothed. One stamp shows us the escape by boat of Lucia Mondella and her lover via Lake Como to the mountains. Another stamp from the series shows us the fishing village Pescarenico with a fishing boat, she looks the same as the boat on the other stamp. Have not any information on the type of boats.
