Venice Welcomes Its First Female Gondolier

After 900 years of being an all boys' club, Venice's canals have welcomed a woman.

Twenty-three-year-old Giorgia Boscolo, the daughter of a gondolier, has become the first woman to officially "man" the banana-shaped boats. The word for female gondolier — gondoliera — didn't even exist before Giorgia passed the rigorous qualifying exams.

As for Giorgia's father, the man who got her interested in the profession, he still thinks being a gondolier is a man's job. But that hasn't stopped him from posing with his daughter as Mr. and Ms. April in a 2010 calendar of "sexy gondoliers." How . . . sweet?

I agree, good for her. On the other hand, I still prefer a male gondolier. But I think it's because I'm used to that idea
