Notebooks and albums
In the 13th century Venice, with its merchant navy, played an important role in the diffusion, traffic and trade of paper in Europe and, until the 14th century, also in its production. The territory of the then Republic of Venice was also called the 'valley of the paper mills'. Leather (dai consacurame) and other skins (dai scorseri) were worked on the Giudecca and the island's ancient name is a reminder of this. Zueca derives from Zudicare, meaning tanning of hides. Although tanneries and paper mills have almost disappeared in the Venetian territory, a few craftsmen continue to embellish many stationery items, such as notebooks and albums, with precious paper and leather. Venice Original selects the best creations to showcase the mastery and beauty of the great Venetian traditions.
