    The first modern industry in the world was the “Arsenale di Venezia". This name, which derives from the Arab “Dār al-ṣināʿa” (“house of crafts”), is now used worldwide. Why is that so?

Constructed first in 1104, it was the first and biggest industry of the world until the industrial revolution which took place almost 7 centuries later! Methods for mass production of ships, based on the standardized production of different elements in different areas of the Arsenal, made it then possible, on an assembly-line basis, to build an entire ship in 1 day.

    If you've been wandering around the district of Cannaregio, chances are that you saw the brickwork facade, pierced by a beautiful portal surmounted by a pointed arch ardoned with white stone decorations. One of these decorations represents St. Christopher, the St Patron of the travellers, for which the church was built in the mid-14th century.

    It’s commonly said that ‘Venice is a great place where to get lost’, something we don’t disagree with but, if we’re not the kind of persons who would recommend to always be attached to a map, we do believe that to get to meet the authentic Venice you need to be able to orientate yourself in the city, which requires a bit of help…even for venetians, at times… So, here they are our favorites places where to eat & drink, shop local, chill and explore, and even to contemplate the numerous curiosities of the city, all put together on a single interactive map, as we think it could come in handy at times!
