Venice and the Artisans

Venetian craftsmanship relives in every corner of Venice and its islands, in the wake of the tradition of the glorious Serenissima Republic, whose legacy is recognized in the monuments of the historic center, among the ancient palaces, the campi, the calli and the countless bridges that cross the characteristic canals. But above all from the Artisans, who have learned the art and crafts from their masters and who are still today the bearers of Venetian craftsmanships with passion and pride.

Visitors from all over the world look for them upon their arrival in Venice to bring home beautiful art pieces.

Discover the Artisans of Venice during Live in Venice Week: we will take you to their shops, where each product is a story written by the skilled hands of a craftsman. We will interview them for you, tantalizing your curiosity so you will search for them during your next visit to Venice.
