Becoming a gondolier

“Fie a manetta” is venetian and it means “Girls at full speed”. It’s the name of a school boat in Venice that learns to women how to drive a motor boat. Until a few years ago, motor boats were considered a better fit for men and not women. Indeed, only men were taught how to drive motor boats.
“Fie a manetta” is non-profit organization that plays an important role of inclusion in Venice and teaches everyone how to drive motor boats.
