Venice is an amazing place, each corner you do have a surprise and a secret to discover, even the locals are always amazed to keep discover new corner and new things. Several year ago during my wondering around venice i had the chance to meet one of the most incredible person that of   my life, Gianni Basso, together with the son Stefano run one of the most authentic shop of the entire island of Venice. They are printers and the passion for their job is just unreal … you ll be astonished by the first edition of pinocchio, cherry wooden stamps from the the vatican — original printing machine of some 200 years ago … The print shop of Gianni and Stefano they don’t have an email, they don’t have a website, they don’t have a fax … but they do have a telephone but is dated back to the 1950 .. they don’t have a computer but they print business cards for microsoft .. here is just passion and word of mouth, going back to the roots, where everything is hand made and where a person produce everything is just priceless!!  if you are in venice this must be the first place that you should visit ! This will be the place to buy your moments from venice … business cards, old prints of venice, venice maps, and much more … ask Gianni to see his mail .. look everybody still do handwriting no printing !! Smell the ink and enjoy the real venice. you can find the shop in calle del fumo
