Back Creative generations

See how mastery is handed down through the generations meeting some Venetian family businesses: the Vergombello workshop, where the art of Venetian goldsmithing has been preserved since 1932; the atelier Ca’ Macana, which has revived the tradition of the papier-mâché Venice masks; Lunardelli Venezia, a brand celebrated for its luxury wooden objects; Mario Berta Battiloro, where the last master goldbeater in Europe keeps alive this craft, in the palace once home to the great painter Titian.
