S.M.S.C.C. Venezia: the oldest association in Venice

Who is S.M.S.C.C. Venezia

The Mutual Aid Society of Carpentieri and Calafati was founded in Venice in 1867 and is recognized as the oldest of the associations existing in the city today.

Moral heir of the ancient small “schole”, associations that at the time of the Serenissima Republic brought together the artisans belonging to the same “Art” and also the various categories of arsenalotti (workers of the Arsenale), or the schola dei Calafai at the Arsenal and the Marangoni ship school.

Thanks to our media sponsor for this event:


We will meet the people of Società di Mutuo Soccorso fra Carpentieri e Calafati and we will discover the project they have been working on: Creating a Center for the Enhancement of Ancient Traditional Venetian Water Crafts
A new life for the squero grando: to restore it to its original form and make it operational, so as to make it also an educational laboratory for nearby nautical schools and an interesting addition to Venetian culture.
