Artisanal

Along the little vicoli skilled artisans are exposing their creations. Old buildings are hosting stalls with handmade crafts and plenty of people are walking around the borghi of Cison di Valmarino admiring the result of hard work an dedication of many artists and crafters. From carved woods, to crochet and dried flowers, handmade shoes and jewellery everything is superbly exposed in line with the surroundings, every little corner surprise you, there is so much to see and admire that you forget where you are, you just live the dream: living in line with nature, where  raw materials are transformed into goods for locals, where old skills are  and passed on to next generations, where individual needs are met with a friendly and  personalised service. No waste, recycling is part of daily routine no fancy food but organically grown vegetables and homemade cheese and bread…
