An immersive experience in the great universe of Venetian craftsmanship, through a selection of 50 extraordinary workshops, furnaces and ateliers, historical or more recent, which are hidden among the calli and campielli of Venice, as well as among the colorful streets of Murano and Burano. Faces, stories and artworks to be discovered. 240 pages, in two languages (Italian / English), pocket size, with more than 230 photos, it is an unmissable guide for beauty lovers: more a small art book than a guide.
A project wanted by the Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship, organizer of the international event Homo Faber, together with the Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d'Arte, and created by the publishing house Gruppo Editoriale, proud to once again pay homage to the masters of know-how, expanding the “made to measure” series, which already boasts titles dedicated to cities such as Milan, Florence and Italy (this last one collects a selection of 100 of the best Italian artisanal workshops). Through the stories and the photos of Dario Garofalo, the guide presents the best of Venetian artistic craftsmanship, from glass to jewellery, passing through décor, tailoring, gondolas, masks and weaving, as well as bespoke footwear.
Hidden gems, revealed to those who have the taste, the time and the desire to discover a more evocative, authentic and original way to visit the city. The guide is distributed in the most prestigious hotels, in the best bookshops in Venice and in the most important bookshops in the main cities of Italy, as well on the major digital platforms.
