The oar, forcola maker, the boat yard, the ship builder, but also the Fisherman and the Vegetable farmer: discovering the most fascinating artisans in all of Venice.
"In Venice we learn to see and listen to the invisible and inaudible, the stones, the bricks, the dark, the water, light, things that speak to us."
Departure from the Cavanna Tintoretto on board a typical Venetain craft to the dressmaker Nicolao Atelier. Once at the dress maker you will be immersed in an atmosphere of past times. You will be able to admire the vast repertoire of ceremonial and historical costumes all made from the old traditions and original material.
Re-boarding the boat we will head to the Canal Grande, the main canal in Venice where here the most important event in the sporting calandar of Venice the Regata Storica takes place. Which, until this day still heralds the unbeaten champion our Dogaressa Gloria Rogliani.
During the navigation on the Grand Canal you will have the privilidge to admire the fascinating palaces of the island and to pass under the Rialto Bridge. A place of historical interest for its trading with the Orient.
