Slow Venice: Gold leaf production.
Facing Titian’s house lies a family business that carries on an ancient trade, namely that of transforming gold from an ingot to a leaf. The group will learn the most important steps of the transformation, casting, rolling and hand-beating the “mould” with the gold leafs inside, before ending up in the cutting and packaging room where they will be able to “feel and touch the weight of the gold leaf.”
Visitors can also purchase gold for artistic decoration, for certified food decoration, for cosmetic use and other small items.
