Visit a traditional remer atelier in central Venice in which this tradition is carried on. Get a guided tour of the workshop from the remer himself as you learn about what it takes to craft a forcola (a fulcrum or crutch) and gondola oar. Each forcola must be custom-made by hand for each gondolier. Get a brief overview of the history of remers in Venice and an explanation of the forcola. Learn about all the materials required and the tools the remer uses for his job.
