Our male main character in We’ll Always Have Venice is Gianluca Marangon. He handcrafts oars and oarlocks for gondolas and other Venetian boats, as well as rowing with his crew, campaigning for sustainable tourism and going shopping with his grandma. Did I mention he’s also hot? Like, pick-your-tongue-up-off-the-floor hot?
But this indigenous Venetian is not interested in romantic gondola rides with tourists. A summer fling has gone badly for him before. But you can rely on him for everything else you might need during your stay.
But why the duck? You’ll have to wait until he tells Norah!
