Recognize It?

The gondola,
there is nothing else quite like her.
Her silhouette is unmistakable.
The sight of her signature ferro is enough for most to identify her.

Many believe she is the "world's most recognizable boat".

In fact I've heard it said that if you took twenty people
from different parts of the world,
and showed them twenty boats from all over the globe,
more of them would recognize the gondola than any other boat.

Here's one third of the boat,
I wonder how many people would know the identity of the boat from this photo.

I agree. I think it's one of yours. I can make out the reflection of Villa Nova in the background.
