Marco Pavan: Gondolier of the Month

Marco Pavan rows from Santa Sophia tragheto. In March of 2008 we (Bepi and Maximus) purchased Marco's gondola "Nellie" which was named after his mother. His father is an itagliatore, a wood carver and he carves for gondola builders. Marco was a great help to us. He helped us navigate the grand canal by waving to us from his motor boat as to which side would be clear. We even took a free cab ride with his friend. The photo was taken as we passed under the Rialto Bridge.
