Gianni Basso

Stationery in Cannaregio

Gianni Basso doesn't advertise his letterpressing services: the calling cards crowding his workshop window do the trick. From Microsoft COO's to celebrities and royalty, movers and shakers from around the world get their business cards, invitations and stationery printed here. Trained at the Armenian Monastery, Gianni is as much a piece of Venetian history as his miniature print museum next door.
