The shipyard at fondamenta Nani, where gondola’s are made and repaired. Last year I was in Nova Veneza, in southern Brazil, and they had a gondola in a pond, a gift from the city of Venice. Next day I met a young Dutch lady who has built a gondola in Amsterdam (yeah yeah, the Venice of the north) as part of her boat building studies. Crazy world. Excellent wine bar on this fondamenta.
