I have a weel chair for free if it can be of some help (I doubt) other then that I can make some phone calls. When are you going to need it?
I'm based in Bologna but got good contacts in Milan.
Let me know.

I will be filmingfor a short film, being directed by Wes Anderson, in the Cinecitta (spelling ?) studios in Rome for a week and then I have 1 week in Verona and 8 days in Venice. I need the Rickshaw mainly for the shoot in Venice. Unfortunately I need to hard mount the arm, so the wheelchair is not ideal, but thank you for the offer. I have spoken to Hans Helner from Hamburg, who makes the Rickshaw Dolly. he has one that he can ship to me. This is obviously the most expensive solution, and one that I will use only if all other avenues fail.
There is a Venice based operator called Stefano Ben, who may have one. He has not responded to email or a PM here on this forum, so I figure he is either not interested or is on holiday somewhere where he has no internet.
Either way, I would be happy if you have any leads for me.

I've been trying to contact Stefano and some other ops that I know. Still waiting for an answer but probably you already solved your chase. Anyway Stefano has it in Rome (no help) still waiting for other 2 ops closer to Venice then Rome.

Thank you. I have been in touch with Stefano, but I finally got one sent over from ARRI Rental Munich. Are you in Rome ? I am here for one week longer. We are shooting at the backlot at Cinecitta.
