Photographer's Note

This is an authentic Venetian Gondola, and allows tourists to take a short walk of a few meters in the central square of the city. It is currently closed due to Covid 19.

The Gondola was a gift from the Veneto Government as a way of bringing ties between Venice, Italy, and Nova Veneza, Brazil closer together. In front of the gondola there is a small sign with the words: May this gift be a way to always keep connected those who in the old country stayed and those who went in search of dreams in the "New World".

There are only four gondolas officially donated by the government of Venice, Italy: one in Toronto, Canada; another in St. Petersburg, Russia; the third in Beijing, China; and the fourth in Nova Veneza, Santa Catarina, Brazil. The gondola, named Lucille, arrived in 2006. It was used in the Venice canals before being donated and is 100% handmade, manufactured by a construction site that is more than 700 years old and symbolizes an approximation between the cities.
