The ancient art of engraving, which had its greatest splendor and diffusion in Venice, will have no more secrets! For those who want a unique experience in the ancient world of craftsmanship, I organize individual courses (one or at most two people) to explain and put into practice the basic techniques of engraving. Participants will thus have the opportunity to create a real art print made by them (on their original idea or drawing) and take it home. An experience that they will certainly not forget - in fact, they can hang it in their home! The course includes etching with the drypoint technique on Plexiglas or drypoint on zinc. I will follow you in the choice of subjects, in the preparation of the drawings and during all the processing phases, from the initial study to the processing of the plate up to the final prints. Reservations are accepted by people from the same family or relatives

Carnivaling - pastry and mask making (tour to Murano included) - PRIVATE

Carnivaling - pastry and mask making (tour to Murano included) - PRIVATE

Frittelle are the most famous dolci or sweets of Venice Carnival. Frittelle come in a variety of styles, both filled and unfilled. The very traditional “Veneziana” has no filling, but just raisins and pine nuts mixed into the fairly heavy dough. After frying, the frittelle are rolled in granulated sugar. Frittelle are followed closely in popularity by galani: puff pastries made of eggs, flour, sugar and butter that are cut in stripes and fried in boiling oil. At the end of the cooking, when they are crispy, they are dried and covered with powdered sugar. Frittelle and galani begin showing up everywhere during the weeks leading up to Carnival. When Carnival is over, frittelle and galani disappear from the store windows as quick as a flash. So the rule is: grab frittelle and galani when they are available or learn how to cook them yourself! BUT Carnival is much more: it is also masks. So why don’t you paint your own after all this hard cooking and eating work?
