Padova, the city of crafts
Discover the old town centre and the ateliers of the artisans
This tour takes us to the discovery of the real Padua. The Padua made of hidden alleys, of breath taking views, of marvellous reflections in the canals of the city, and the poetical shadows of the medieval porticos. We’ll know how it is to live as a real insider, as a “padovano DOC”. Real Padouan people drink espresso in the historical Coffee Pedrocchi and have aperitif with” bianchetto” (still white wine usually on tap) under the “Salone” of the Palazzo della Ragione.
We start our tour in Padova visiting various ateliers of artisans of the city. Rare as hen’s teeth, these artisans, with their stories transmit the tradition of the art of Padua. These artisans are the only keepers of the art tradition of Padova, which has its roots in the Italian art history.
First, we’ll discover the art of glass window-making. We’ll see the glass window-maker at work during the creation of lead stained crystal glass window, one of the few glass window-makers who remained and continues transmitting the art of the best glass makers of Murano.
Then we’ll visit the atelier of Andrea, young and expert artisan specialized in the art of gilding.
We conclude our tour with the a promenade in the marvellous city of Padova, its squares and the final break ‘’alla Padovana’’.
