The vaporetto captain

9 August, 2017

When I was young the captains of vaporetti or motoscafi were always manly men, now it’s quite common to see a blond lady at the helm.

And only now I realize how wrong it was.

    When I was in Venice in March I saw a woman with short dark hair as captain of the No. 2 . I have seen women as workers on the vaporetti over the last few years but this was the first captain I had seen.
    It’s about time.
