Meeting at your hotel or in St Mark Square where, together with our local guide, you will be transferred to Cannareggio area for a short walking tour of one of the most characteristic district of Venice. Here, the narrow alleys, the typical campi (little squares), and the old Jewish Ghetto makes the atmosphere unique and worth of a visit. You will be received by the artisans at the Atelier, which is surely the most prestigious of Venice, housing a large collection of epoch dresses used for international movie productions, Carnival happenings and theme-parties.

The Atelier hosts a large collection of original dresses coming from different centuries, beyond many reproductions, and produces and preserves the theatre dresses – lent to the international Cinema for movies like “Farinelli”, the French part of the movie “Elisabeth”, “The Merchant of Venice”, “Casanova” and the Lyrical Opera of “Don Carlos” of Giuseppe Verdi realized just for the Lyrical Theatre of Chicago and Washington Opera and... obviously, the Venetian Theatre La Fenice.

Visit to the laboratory with all explanation of the real “making” of the dresses and of the Showroom where the most impressive works are preserved. At the end of the visit, we are pleased to give a special gift to each one of our guests; the Venetian cocked hat called “tricorno”.. of course it's hand-crafted by the atelier.
