In Bassano del Grappa, discover the traditions and the handcraft of pottery and weaving 

In Veneto and Bassano del Grappa there are many are handcraft traditions that are masterpieces of skill, of art, following the generations, and passion for the work!
Ceramics is undoubtedly an historical tradition for Bassano del Grappa and the small town of Nove, which has been producing pottery for three hundred years. In the heart of the historic center, Emma Chiara has been making pottery for over thirty years, with a taste and passion that set her aside. We will enter her workshop for a demonstration of handwork and-on request-to take a real pottery workshop making a unique piece!
Next, we move a few miles, where the history of Renata Bonfanti is an intrinsic part of the Bassano textile weaving tradition. Alessandro, her nephew, illustrates the ancient weaving looms, tells us about his aunt, and tells us about a tradition that still endures today, albeit in the thousands of difficulties, in a unique art.

We will then continue for lunch/dinner in a unique location: Villa Stecchini, a magnificent 16th-century mansion that holds unique artistic treasures inside. Here we will have the opportunity to participate in a pizza cooking class – on demand – or to join for a tasting in the Villa and its beautiful garden with a selection of local salumi and cheeses, traditional cicchettos and local wines.

This handcraft experience in Bassano is perfect for those who wish to discover the beauty of local crafts, meet passionate artisans, and learn new culinary techniques, all in a unique and atmospheric atmosphere.
