Located in Peggy Guggenheim’s former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal (and right next door to Ca Maria Adele), the PEGGY GUGGENHEIM COLLECTION presents Guggenheim’s personal collection, masterpieces from the Hannelore B and Rudolph B Schulhof Collection, the Nasher Sculpture Garden, as well as temporary exhibitions, guggenheim-venice.it.

Unleash your inner creativity with a visit to CA?MACANA and make your very own traditional mask for Carnevale, using the same techniques the Venetian artisans did 800 years ago. Set up by a former architect, Ca’macana is the oldest and finest mask making workshop in Venice, and a pleasant way to pass the day with young and old, camanca.com.

THE MERCHANT OF VENICE

Was inspired by the Perfume Museum, which in turn crowns the creation of The Merchant of Venice fragrance. First of its kind in Italy, the museum guides visitors through multimedia presentations, sensory experiences, and rare objects, revealing the centuries-old continuity between the Republic of Venice and the history of perfume. Follow this up with a visit to the atelier itself, where the luxury line of perfumes o ers an assortment of exclusive scents. Discover why this century-old perfume atelier is one of the most sought-after fragrance houses in the world, themerchantofvenice.net.

No trip to Venice is complete without a visit to at least one of the splendid artisanal workshops, which lie nestled within the recesses of the waterways. One such workshop is TESSITURA LUIGI BEVILACQUA, whose jacquard hand looms date back to the 19th century and where, to this day, they continue to make the best silk brocades in the world for high-profile customers such as The White House and the Kremlin, and for some of the most iconic couturiers and fashion brands of our time, such as Prada, Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana. Their age-old hand looming techniques is a thing of true beauty and an exceptional experience to see first-hand. Entering their workshop transports you back to ancient Venice, where craftsmanship, passion and creativity abound, luigi-bevilacqua.com.
