Venice Original Project & Exhibition, May 18-25

Venice Original:

a project to sustain and promote the artistic and traditional craftsmanship of Venice

Wednesday May, 18 2022 - Wednesday May, 25 2022

Italian Cultural Institute 

A selection of authentic Venetian craftsmanship objects on display at the Italian Cultural Institute

on the occasion of Italy on Madison.

On May 25, the Venice Original e-commerce project and the new guide that tells all the authentic / original craftsmen of Venice will also be presented to the public, two years after the launch of the initiative and one year after the portal went online.

Venice Original is a platform that brings together and over 120 Venetian artisans, their products and their stories, in order to present a lively, productive and creative Venice, and its intangible cultural heritage, consisting of the best Venetian craftsmanship.

The site aims to introduce the true artisans of the city, their techniques, their history and the many unique and precious objects they produce, with the possibility of buying them online and receiving them, comfortably and securely, directly at home. Objects that become memories, experiences and people, a synthesis of the best - and most original - Venetian know-how.

The project was born from an initiative of the CNA Metropolitana of Venice, developed thanks to the contribution of J.P. Morgan, with the patronage of the Municipality of Venice and the Chamber of Commerce of Venice and Rovigo, to support Venetian artisanal companies, affected by the double emergency of "high water" and the global health crisis.
