This is the second post of our new projects (cf. here) after the first one published in April about Frank Lloyd Wright and the Masieri Memorial. We are not moving far from the previous one since we will talk about a well-known, worldwide famous, bridge: Rialto Bridge.
For this second appointment with Venetian craftsmanship, the protagonists are Lidia and Olena. They are two tailors modelers, not born in Venice, but who have been living here for many years and who are perfectly integrated with the city and its inhabitants.
In this trip called Behind Venice, we will discover the Venetian craftsmanship. The first stop is at the historic glass pearl factory Costantini Glass Beads.
Take the water bus (Vaporetto) and stop at Murano Venier, get off and, first left and then right, you are in Calle del Cimitero, in front of the door of the centennial factory, which since 2006 is owned by Alessandro Moretti, the grandson of Ubaldo Costantini (his great-grandfather) and Cleto Costantini (his grandfather).
