The term legend is used too loosely these days. On April 10th, however, we lost a legend when the genius boat designer Carlo Riva, aged 95, went to the big harbour in the sky. This was the man who between 1950 and 1970, on Lake Iseo in the north of Italy, created the legend and the myth that was Riva, the finest of all boat brands encapsulating la dolce vita. R.I.P. Herewith, as a small homage, just a few of the images I have taken of Rivas.
