Italian term or phrase: la spingono a poppa
Contesto:

Al centro, in secondo piano metterei una o due barche, trascinate sulla spiaggia dai marinai spagnoli, che le hanno usate per arrivare a terra. Uno o due di loro le trascinano sulla sabbia dalla prua; gli altri la spingono a poppa.

Molte Grazie,

Barbara
