The opening of the new Fondaco dei Tedeschi (last 1st of October) has been the biggest news in Venice in the past years.
The restoration has been sumptuous (here the details: www.yatzer.com/fondaco-dei-tedeschi-venice-benetton-oma), the terrace is stunning and open to all, but the best threads in the social site has been about these slippers for sale in one of the shops at the price of 360 euro!

CARPENTIERI E CALAFATI. In the old Venice Arsenale The “Calafati” were the worker learned in sealing up the ships with jute fibre and hot pitch. Now this craft doesn’t exist any more, but the Società di mutuo soccorso fra carpentieri e calafati still exists, it is the historical organization of welfare for the “calafati” and woodworkers families.
This is its office.
(This time I have used quite a lot the vocabulary, forgive the mistakes)

Dedicated to those who believe that Venice is all crowded with tourists.
There are still in Venice place quiet and silent, with just the sound of pigeons and Venetian women chatting on the windows. You can even find a hidden old shop like this.
If you see this Venice in Spring you will yearn to return.
