"Venice Palina" ~ These candy-striped mooring poles in Las Vegas are replicas of the "palina" found in the Venice Lagoon in Italy. Striped palina are a 6-Century old tradition, and more than 90,000 of the palina can be found throughout the canals of Venice. Aging wooden poles in Venice are now replaced with plastic poles in order to reduce maintenance costs.
