A Day on Giudecca meeting artisans and discovering art

Today we’re taking a vaporetto from San Zaccaria and going to Giudecca – Palanca. A 10 minute boat ride that will allow us to discover a whole new and quite enchanted reality, made of arts, crafts, a magical ex convent and passionate people. As some of you may know, Giudecca has become a sort of hub for contemporary arts in Venice; thanks to the lower rents, many offices and laboratories have settled on the island, where life seems much more sustainable and people-friendly than in central Venice.

The first place I stopped in was the Murano Glass Fine Art studio and showroom, where I met Stefano Morasso and his lovely wife Nicoletta.
