Venice Fun Fact of the day: first female gondolier

Venice Fun Fact of the day:
There are a little over 400 gondoliers in Venice.
But Venice got its first female gondolier in 2010 ending 900 years of male dominance in the profession.
Giorgia Boscolo, 24, has become the first woman to pass the Italian city’s strict gondolier exam and be granted a full license.
