Le Forcole di Saverio Pastor

Lonely Planet review

Only one thing in the world actually moves like Jagger: Mick Jagger's bespoke forcola , hand-carved by Saverio Pastor. Each forked wooden gondola oarlock is individually designed to match a gondolier’s height, weight and movement, so the gondola doesn't rock too hard when the gondolier hits a groove. Pastor's forcole twist elegantly, striking an easy balance on gondolas and mantelpieces alike.
