Description

Amati Gondola the Jewel of Venice

Inseparably linked to the city of Venice from which it is iconicaly linked as the most famous symbol, the gondola is one of the most famous boat types in the world. Considered to be one of the most elegant and sophisticated. Due to its characteristics of manoeuvrability and speed, it was the Venetian boat best suited for the transport of people before the advent of the motorised craft.

The gondola is completely painted in black, a colour requested by a decree of the Magistrate of the Pomp (16th century) intended to limit the excessive luxury used by the noble and rich to adorn their own boats.

This scale model wooden kit includes wooden hull with laser cut frames, floor and hull planks, photo-etched decorations and stern irons, resin fork, cast metal lantern, and fabric for the seat cushions. Also includes a wooden display stand. Step-by-step instructions and parts list provided in english.
