Ever wonder how an Italian Sofa comes to life? - Or how pieces of carefully selected hardwoods are turned into useful and exciting objects? - Or… how other amazing pieces like fine ceramics, wall-hanging murals, and sculptures go from being just pieces of material… to timeless, masterful creations?
Well… Get ready to see how, first hand - In this exclusively artisan experience, you get to encounter some of Rome’s finest craftspeople… in their natural habitat!
Take a moment to reflect. - How did the items that we treasure and use everyday come to be? - Simple. - In the hands of an expert crafts person. - For centuries, these humble and highly-skilled people have been crafting culture, and giving form and function to the things that make life beautiful!
Enjoy a cup of coffee (provided… it is Italy!) as you stroll through winding old paths and side-streets that are still laden with master artisans and their apprentices. Visit their work spaces - see, smell, touch... understand. - It’s awesome.
Here’s your chance to discover how handcrafted Italian pieces are made.... and have a chance to purchase fine works of art and craft directly from the artisans, at incredible prices. We are talking true souvenirs, it’s almost an insult to call them that as they could easily become heirlooms.
Straight from the studio, you’ll see, touch, and take home a range of fine ceramics, glass work, ironwork, silks, furniture, you name it. - And you’ll have the whole story too, right from the workshop to you.
Book this tour to get in touch with the human-hand behind fine craft-work, and to see Rome from a wholly different perspective! - While the Eternal City bustles away outside… These craftspeople have been bringing life, style, and humanity to the world, one piece at a time.
Interesting stuff. - Kids and adults alike love the refreshing, down-to-earth take on society and culture that this tour gives you. - Now, if only it included a new sofa…
