art and crafts
in the streets and squares of Castello
The route starts at Piazza San Marco meanders along streets, quays and squares of the sestiere of Castello to the city’s easternmost tip, Sant'Elena, where we admire the skyline of the Lido and other nearby islands (San Servolo, San Lazzaro degli Armeni, and Le Grazie) as well as a spectacular sunset towards the bell tower in Piazza San Marco.
Through the street names, we will discover areas like Calle delle Rasse, Campo della Bragora, Campo della Tana, Sotoportego de le Ancore and others.
We will also discover craftsmen of wood oar locks and oars at Brandolisio, furniture by Girelli and restorations by Miotto, paint on canvas by Schola to the flavours and the fragrance of homemade pasta by Dei Rossi and coffee roasted by Girani.
