Map

 We'll trace the evolution of one of Venice's most beautiful merchant goods - silk. We'll visit the only bottega in Europe still using ancient looms and see how they create the beautiful silk damasks and velvets that can be seen even today from the Kremlin to the catwalks of designers like Dolce and Gabbana. We'll continue on to Ca Mocenigo to see how these sumptuous fabrics were used in Venetian clothing and home furnishings in this beautiful palazzo to get a real sense of life in 18th century Venice. Then we'll hop over the Grand Canal to visit a famous costume atelier where they produce period clothing for film and television productions, as well as renting everything you need to attend a masked ball during Carnevale. We'll hear about Venetian Carnival traditions and you will go home with a handmade tricorn hat (worn by both men and women) to remind you of this unforgettable experience!
