Saverio Pastor’s Workshop

Here is another “quick panorama” where I took two images and stitched them together in Photoshop.  This was before I had my Really Right Stuff PG-02 Pro Omni-Pivot Package panorama head, so I did lose much of the image.

This is the interior of Saverio Pastor’s workshop on the Fondamenta Soranzo in Venice, Italy.  Saverio handcrafts the fórcola (plural fórcole) which is the rowlock or oar post used in traditional Venetian boats, the most well-known type of boat being the gondola.  They are quite beautiful, you can see for yourself at  We had a very nice conversation with Saverio, we were the only ones in the shop with him.  Amazingly, he understood most of our Italian and in the end wished us a happy anniversary.  You can stop by his shop and watch him work at Dorsoduro 341, Fondamenta Soranzo 30123 Venezia, Italy.
