CARPENTIERI E CALAFATI. In the old Venice Arsenale The “Calafati” were the worker learned in sealing up the ships with jute fibre and hot pitch. Now this craft doesn’t exist any more, but the Società di mutuo soccorso fra carpentieri e calafati  still exists, it is the historical  organization of welfare for the “calafati” and woodworkers families.

This is its office.
