HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

In this 40 minutes guided tour for groups in the workshop of the venetian Battiloro, the only one in Italy and in Europe that turns gold bars into thin leaves following a method of the 18, you will understand and observe how we actually transform this precious material. We will show this noble craft in all its stages inside the palace of the famous painter Titian. We will explain the different applications of those thin gold leaves. In the historic workshop, that is still intact since 1926, gold, silver and other precious metals are transformed into thin leaves, suitable for applications in many fields. The added value of our family-run business is the artisanal production and the passion that drives us: in fact, the whole working process is carried out with the old wisdom and the wealth of human labor. A unique experience that will make you touch gold with your hands!

SOME TIPS

We suggest you to wear comfortable shoes (preferably no heels!), since the palace and all the locations are still old fashioned.
The steps, the walls, the floors have not been restored recently so you will have the chance to walk in the same rooms where Tiziano Vecellio used to.
This visit is reserved for groups consisting in at least 6 people.
