  • It is one of the few places where gondolas are built and repaired. Just across the canal is a small gondola museum where you can view footage shot in the squero of the work of the artisans on the gondolas.

  • We visited the squero at a school camp with 40 9/10 year olds. The visit was really very interesting and allowed us to understand more about this wonderful city. The guide is the owner's daughter. A single note. the visit lasted 30 minutes and the cost seemed a bit excessive.
