Sua eccellenza... l'Artigianato Veneziano!
Il "bello e ben fatto" presentato da chi lo fa
From 8 to 10 July, a selection of the finest Venetian artisanal arts and crafts will go on display at San Teodoro on Campo San Salvador, in the heart of the ancient city of Venice. In an initiative overseen by Confartigianato Venezia, for three days a group of eight artisans will transfer their workshops into the prestigious hall of the Scuola Grande San Teodoro, where they will showcase their techniques and offer an insight into the passion behind their work.
A range of products featuring authentic artisanal workmanship will be displayed and presented, alongside activities such as screen printing, bookbinding, bead setting, glass fusing and the creation of lampshades, masks and high-end costume jewellery.
Admission to the exhibition is free.
Also in attendance will be the Comitato per la Salvaguardia dell'Arte delle Perle di Vetro Veneziane (Committee to Protect the Art of Venetian Glass Beads) and the lace makers of the Fondazione Andriana Marcello.
