Marcello is the most seasoned member of La Gondola Providence's talented group of gondoliers, as well as the company's owner, president, and spokesperson.
He started rowing gondolas in 1999, while still in college at Lehigh University. A career in teaching allowed him to keep his his summer job as a gondolier while still working full time. After eight seasons of working for his former employers, he purchased the company and two gondolas, and La Gondola Providence was born.
Marcello has been a mainstay on the river ever since, training an excellent crew of gondoliers, singing at every opportunity, and both marveling at and showing off the amazing Renaissance City of Providence to locals and tourists alike. He lives in Foster at the international headquarters of La Gondola Providence with First Gondolady Bryna and their children, Aine and Aelyn, affectionately nicknamed Moonbeam and Little Star.
