Scoletta dei Calegheri – San Tomà  Venice

It has hosted since 1446 the headquarters of the confraternity of Calegheri (Shoemakers).

In Venice the workers were usually organized into confraternity, called Schools, that had religious and social functions because they were also a trade union for workers.
