Souvenir shopping in The Veneto
- Sort by:
Since 1918, the Valese family has cast figures in bronze, copper and other metals here. Its reputation is unequalled in the city. Some items, such as the ornamental horses that adorn the flanks of the city's gondolas, suggest themselves more readily as souvenirs than others.
This studio has paintings, aquatints and engravings signed by two local artists, Cadore and Paolo Baruffaldi, that make fine gifts. Cadore concentrates his commercial efforts on Venetian scenes, while Baruffaldi depicts masked people. Other artists are thrown into the mix.
