The Remo Room

In my post "The Wall of Forcole" I mentioned something called 
the "Remo Room".
I suppose that since the plural of remo (oar) would be "remi", 
but Remo Room just sounds better to me.

Like so many other rowing clubs in the Veneto - both in Venezia and throughout the region - the Gruppo Sportivo Voga Veneta in Mestre (GSVVM) has a large fleet of boats.

Because they're a rowing club, they've obviously got to have lots of remi.
As you may have guessed, they keep them in a room,
and this is a picture that I took of part of that room.
Looking up toward the ceiling, I was able to capture most of the remi,
but there were plenty more.
