Oarlocks & Boats in Venice with Piero Dri, a.ka. Il Forcolaio Matto



venice talks piero dri il forcolaio matto



On episode #18 I got to chat with Piero Dri a.k.a. Il Forcolaio Matto, who has been carrying out one of the oldest traditional trades in Venice for 15 years, namely that of the “remèr”, the craftsman who makes the historic Venetian forcole, the oarlock, the typical support on which the gondola oars pivot.

With Piero we discovered alla bout the Venetian oarlocks, the Voga alla Veneta, Venetian rowing, and about the importance of sustainable tourism and crafts in Venice.

You can find Piero at Il Forcolaio Matto and on social medias as @ilforcolaiomatto

I hope you will enjoy our chat!
