art and crafts
between San Felice and Santi Apostoli
The route starts halfway down Strada Nuova, near San Felice, and extends to the sestiere of Cannaregio overlooking the lagoon towards the islands of Murano and Burano, then returning to Campo Santi Apostoli. Along the way, its place names and stories and legends will guide us as we discover better-known areas like Campo dei Gesuiti and Campo Santi Apostoli as well as more out-of-the-way, but no less interesting places like Ruga Do Pozzi, Calle del Fumo and Rio Terà Barba Frutariol.
We will also explore the shops of artisans producing household goods, from Tapezzeria Vianello to Serigrafia Artistica Fallani, from the art of gold leaf by Battiloro to artistic glass by Giolo (Costantini)
