Visits Homo Faber 2024

Home > Visits Homo Faber 2024


During Homo Faber in Città, the historic Orsoni furnace, the only live flame furnace in the historic center of Venice, opens its doors to the public for a cultural visit to discover the history and production spaces.

The visit will be an opportunity to see how the creation of precious 24-karat gold leaf mosaics and Venetian smalti is carried out daily, using the same techniques passed down from Byzantine culture. The experience will conclude in the Color Library, the room where, since 1888, all the smalti produced by the furnace have been kept and which today holds more than 3,500 different shades of color.

The Orsoni furnace is a production site. Please read the access and registration rules carefully.
