Metallurgy / Casting / Venetian dialect
Italian term or phrase: frezzeria
Does anyone speak Venetian?
I'm translating a book about the history and architecture of Venetian hotels, and in one section they talk about how the former metalworking activities in a certain neighbourhood have influenced the place names:

La presenza dei Fabbri in questa zona centralissima della città non ci deve stupire. Poco lontano infatti, era attivo lo squero di Terranova, il più antico arsenale veneziano dove si forgiavano armi, testimonianza suffragata anche dalla toponomastica dei dintorni, vedi appunto la **Frezzeria**, calle Bombarda, calle dei Fabbri, dei Fuseri etc.

I assume that "frezzeria" means "frecceria", but would that be someone who makes or sells arrow? What would you call that?

Thanks for any help.
