Back Time traveling Venice

Take one day to look at Venice with different eyes, exploring precious crafts still surviving after centuries: begin with a guided tour of the Tessitura Luigi Bevilacqua historic weaving mill; move to Orsoni, the only and last furnace operating with fire in Venice to produce “smalti” for mosaics; meet the last master goldbeater in Europe at Mario Berta Battiloro and finally visit Bottega del Tintoretto, where the know-how built by generations of craftsmen in the field of printing is preserved.
