In Venice, tradition is still very much a part of the daily life and work of many craftsman who, often in tiny workshops hidden down narrow lanes, produce genuine masterpieces with their creativity and passion passed down from father to son. In this book, the author's intention was not only to illustrate an aspect of the city that is as little-known as it is precious, but also to create a visual memory for the new generations growing up in a world of sophisticated technology and who know nothing of the creative possibilities of expert hands. Thirty craftsmen including painters, sculptors, gondola makers and glass makers are profiled with several pages of photos and text devoted to each. This beautifully illustrated volume brings the reader into the studios and workshops of these artisans who honor traditions of quality that date back to the earliest Venetian guilds of the 13th and 14th centuries.
