Sharon Jacobucci

I met Sharon Jacobucci years ago when she “gave me her autograph”, as she likes to say. Sharon is never seen around Venice without a big smile on her face and a friendly wave hello to all. A fond memory I have of Sharon was when some parking challenged Scottish friends of mine (ripe from finishing the Gumball3000 2006 in which they started driving in London … drove thru Vienna and Budapest to Belgrade … put the car on a plane to Phuket and drove to Bangkok … put the car back on a plane and then flew to Salt Lake City, where they then drove to Las Vegas and finished in Venice … all in 8 days!) parked in the red zone in front of Mercedes Grill where we were eating. Sharon, eyeballing the car while we jumped up to move it … said “now WHAT do you want me to do with THAT?” A right hand drive car currently registered in Scotland? Sharon has seen it all by this point! The Scotts shared some laughs and pictures with their new pal Sharon and moved the car to a sensible place.Tango in Venice Here is Sharon and Tangospeed‘s driver Sten in 2006. Sharon Jacobucci and Tangospeed's StenWhile walking to lunch the other day, Keri and I stopped to say hello to Sharon while she was on her lunch break. Keri took the opportunity to break out her digicam for an impromptu interview of Sharon about the various famous and infamous folk that she has “given her autograph to” in her twenty years of working in Venice. Thanks for being YoVenice!’s first interview, Sharon!
