Costumes Atelier visit
You will meet your guide at ship dock or at tender mooring; she will wait for you handling the Onirikos arrival board and she will introduce you to your driver. They will escort you to the Costumes Atelier in Venice in order to experience a unique private visit.
The Atelier is in the very heart of Venice, and here deft and expert fingers create unique and wonderful costumes.
You will learn the technical knowledge, the respect for the cut and styles of period costumes and the passion for fabrics and above all the skill in using them, combined with the constant search for the link between costumes and history. All these factors guarantee the artistry of the work and the creations are appreciated all over the world. The Atelier has become a point of reference for theatre, opera, films and historical parades and processions. It owns a vast range of period costumes, formal clothes for ceremonial occasions and also evening and wedding clothes, complete with every type of accessory.
From 1983 up to now, the Atelier had a continual succession of national and international prestigious cooperation between Venice to the Tibet and the Costume Institute of Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The films ‘Marco Polo’, ‘Farinelli’, ‘Elizabeth’, ‘The Merchant of Venice’, the works ‘Don Carlos’ at the Lyric Opera in Chicago, ‘Madame Butterfly’ at the Fenice, and others, represent just a small part of the impressive production of costumes of this Atelier. You will be absorbed in the special atmosphere of iconographical and historical study, where textiles and costumes are designed, created, produced and handled by observing pictures of past times, descriptions, original parts and studies on fashion.
After the visit your driver will escort you back to the Port.
