A week of live streaming interviews

Visiting the artisans

From May 17th up to May 23rd the three of us, Monica, Cinzia and Marialaura, with some colleagues and friends, will be interviewing and filming not only places, but especially people: those people that make Venice great. The Venetians normally seem to disappear, when compared with the grandeur of the Venetian palazzos and churches. Still, the city does not exit by itself: it is run, restored, kept alive by those people that live and work here.

It is people that make the difference!
And this is what we would like to tell and show you!
During this virtual event we will meet artisans, writers, museum directors, artists, musicians, bloggers, professional tourist guides, and a lot of other interesting figures of the Venetian culture.
There will be topics for all tastes: boats, Murano glass, Art, Carnival, activities for kids, food and drinks, fashion…
All this comes out of a genial idea by Thomas of SofaTour, who is giving us the possibility to show Venice as we like it!

Our role as Professional Tourist Guides

As Professional Tourist Guides we, the girls of Guided Tours in Venice, feel that we have a mission to accomplish in our city, that is to share its beauty and our knowledge about its history, art, culture, traditions, as to keep all this alive for the present and for the future generations.
We like to show real life in Venice, along with its wonderful monuments. And we love to engage our guests in great experiences all around the city.

The people who keep Venice alive

Similarly, those Venetians that we are going to interview have their own mission in town. They all feel that their job is much more than a simple job: it is a way to pass onto the new generations ancient skills and traditions, a way to preserve the memory of a unique culture, a way to keep Venice alive.
During this unique live streaming event you will have to possibility to see Venice and the Venetians from a totally different perspective, that goes beyond the external appearance and reaches directly the heart of our city!
