In Venice, half-day tour in Atelier of excellence

In Venice, half-day tour in Atelier of excellence.

Venice has a particular soul of its own, on one hand visible and on the other secretive, profound and authentic.
To enable you to reach and touch the heart of Venice, we would like to bring you in a walk through historic venetian laboratories, which are outside the typical touristic tracks but important ambassadors of venetian quality worldwide.

To start with, we will discover an historic ARTISAN LABORATORY, where GOLD, silver and other precious metals are transformed into ultra-slim leaves.
Opened to carry on the ancient family craft begun in 1926, this laboratory is a well-established reality in Venice’s craftsmanship.
Here we can observe the fusion phase and the subsequent laminating work, necessary to prepare the gold for the first Hammering.
The slim leaves obtained, not only are used in decoration and restoration, but have applications in multiple fields… Yours is the pleasure to discover which.
 
In the second stage, we will immerse ourselves in the world of textiles: velvet, damask and satin.
We will go in the most prestigious FABRIC MANUFACTURER of Venice, which carries on one of Venice’s most ancient traditions.
A production of top quality, thanks to the use of original 18th century looms  and working techniques. Textiles has been realized here for the White House of Washington, the Swedish Royal Palace and Casa Rosada in Argentina.
You would be able to see weavers working and velvet grows.
For a traditional lunch, we will be glad to suggest you some “BACARO”, a traditional venetian pub where you can delight yourself with wine and fabulous “cicchetti”.

The tour is available from Monday to Friday, according to working hours of laboratories.

Price for person: from € 35,00
Price for person with guide (min. 4 people): from € 85,00
