/ Venetian baking
Italian term or phrase: Venetian bread-baking terms
Working from audio, the words sound like "calle del pistola" (a sort of baker?) and "bavoura" - a form of bread. Because this is probably in Venetian dialect, I would even leave the original text, but would like to know how to spell these words correctly and know more about exactly what they mean.
