今でこそ..

日本語
今でこそゴンドリエーレは高収入という印象はあるけれども、それは観光業が盛んになったここ数十年の話に過ぎない。彼の父は大家族を養うために、ゴンドリエーレの仕事が少ない冬の間は、フレスコ画の修復や木工細工など、器用な手先を生かせる様々な仕事をしていた。
英語
Gondoliers have an image of earning high wages nowadays, but it's only in the past few decades since tourism became popular. His father used to do various jobs like fixing fresco paintings and woodwork with his great fingers during the winter which was the low business season for gondoliers for accommodating such a large family.
