Report: a visit to a squero in Venice

I was so lucky to be invited into the Squero Tramontin, in Venice.

The report and photos, are on the 8 December post of my blog:

This goes down as one of the best experiences I've had in Venice.

Wow, how absolutely amazing!

I read up on the squero before our trip, in the hopes one accepted visitors.. well now we know (but only if you smile and wear a red coat).

Actually, Gianluca, the guide of our topa tour took us right up close by water and we got some nice photographs, but oh, to be invited inside. What bliss indeed!

Hi, Calum

I still can't believe my luck. They just kept on working, so I was able to see some of the many processes that go into making these craft.

On Friday, I'm going to a foundry in Cannaregio, to see them casting and fusing metal for various products: door knockers, light fittings, etc. If I'm allowed to take photos, I'll do a post about that.

Cheers.
