They have lost every machine that's necessary, from the ovens that bake their famous Venetian fugasa...
...to their mixers that make tradition Venetian fritelle, a mainstay of Carnival celebrations.
Nono, Linda (Nono's daughter), and Marina are small business owners who are in desperate need to re-open for the holiday season as this is when they make most of their revenue. This campaign would support them to get back on their feet and continue their pastry shop and Venetian tradition.
Being a local, small business owner is hard work . And this disaster has really set them back.
Thank you for whatever you can offer to help them through this difficult time for them!
A quick update: On behalf of Marina, Linda, and Nono we are so incredibly grateful by everyone's generosity and outpouring of support. The funds being raised are allowing us to repair our broken equipment (the oven, mixer, and fridge) and reopen our pasticceria.
A note from Rob and Lisa (amici [friends] di Colussi): To reiterate the immense gratitude the Colussi's have for your collective generosity, thank you all so so much. They are such a wonderful family and we've had such the privilege of knowing them for years now. They are some of our best friends in the whole world. We're lucky to be able to call them neighbors here in Venice. It is inspiring to see how determined they have been as they recover from the flood two weeks ago (and the subsequent flooding that has happened several times since then). They have been uplifted by all of your support. Again, thank you so so so much!!!
