“Detourism”, the official Town of Venice Tourist communication Service Newsletter, today presents Venice’s artisans! Enjoy your reading!
THE ARTISAN WORKSHOPS, TRUE ESSENCE OF VENICE: UNIQUE PLACES TO BUY ‘MADE IN VENICE’ EXCELLENCE AND DISCOVER ANCIENT CRAFTS
Bridges and canals, Renaissance palaces and contemporary art museums. Who can resist the Serenissima, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with its 1600 years of history? But Venice is not just about great art and beauty, as venturing into the maze of calli and campielli can also mean discovering the finest local craft masters.
They are glass masters, lace makers, bead-stringers and velvet weavers still using traditional wooden looms, as well as fashion designers and contemporary makers who create everything from jewellery to shoes, bags and hats, even clothing made from seaweed. They make unique handcrafted, artisanal products using their painstaking skills and knowledge.
Venice’s artisans today work in much the same way as their predecessors centuries before, an exceptional craftmanship that is not found anywhere else in the world. Meeting the Venetian crafters, engaging first-hand with the process of turning high-quality materials into finely made goods, is one of the best experiences to enjoy in the City of Water. Explore what makes Venetian way of life unique by leaving the beaten track behind to enter into the depths of the city.
