The great Venetian weaving workshop

Visit to the Tessitura Bevilacqua, the great Venetian weaving workshop, the torch bearer of the art of precious fabric manufacture which, in Venice, reached the height of its splendor in the 16th century.

It will be possible to see the original looms up close while the expert hands of the weavers, still using ancient techniques, transform natural and precious yarns into velvets, brocades, lamps, damasks and satin designed to furnish palaces, residences and theatres worldwide.

History and experience are passed on from generation to generation to family members, and it is thanks to this tradition and a constant commitment to high craftsmanship that Bevilacqua, active in Venice for more than two centuries, is still counted among the most prestigious textile producers in the world.

This is a unique opportunity
