Artigiani del Chiostro

Arts & Crafts in Giudecca, Lido & the Southern Islands

The cloister of the former Convent of Sts Cosmas and Damian has been repurposed as a base for independent artisans to ply their craft. Each keeps their own hours and not all are open to the public, but loop around and you'll find traditional mask makers, antique restorers, artists, metal workers, glass-blowers and many, many cats.
