Slow Food is an organization that promotes local food and traditional cooking. It was founded by Carlo Petrini in Italy in 1986 and has since spread worldwide to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of fast life and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us. Since its beginnings at Boccon di Vino a Typical Italian Trattoria, Slow Food has grown into a global movement involving millions of people in over 160 countries, working to ensure everyone has access to good, clean and fair food. Slow Food believes food is tied to many other aspects of life, including culture, politics, agriculture and the environment. Through our food choices, we can collectively influence how food is cultivated, produced and distributed, and change the world as a result.
Antonio Stradivari è il liutaio più conosciuto al mondo, italiano, menzionato anche con il nominativo in lingua latina Antonius Stradivarius. È stato un costruttore di strumenti a corde di straordinaria fattura come violini, sin dall'inizio aveva modificato i modelli del suo maestro, intervenendo sulle bombature, la forma, le "f" e gli spessori. Probabilmente, fu proprio lui a compiere i primi studi sulla modifica dell'inclinazione del manico. Fino ad allora il manico era semplicemente appoggiato alle fasce e fissato con tre chiodi (metodo barocco), ma questi strumenti si potevano apprezzare solo in piccoli ambienti. Con l'avvento della musica moderna, che veniva eseguita nei teatri, fu deciso di dar maggiore tensione alle corde per avere più potenza di suono. Da qui la necessità di inclinare maggiormente il manico all'indietro e di eseguire l'"incastro", cioè incastrare e incollare all'interno dello zocchetto una parte del manico in modo che potesse resistere alla tensione creata. Fu poi necessario allungare la catena ed anche la tastiera in modo da poter accedere alle posizioni più alte e sostituendo quest'ultima con un legno più resistente: l'ebano. Era nato il violino moderno! Nacquero così i Grandi Stradivari, le sue migliori opere furono costruite tra il 1698 ed il 1725. Raggiunse l'apice tra il 1725 ed il 1730. Dopo il 1730 molti strumenti portano la scritta nell'etichetta "Sub disciplina Stradivarii", probabilmente perché costruiti dai suoi figli. Oltre a violini, viole e violoncelli, Stradivari creò anch arpe, chitarre, liuti e tiorbe; si stima in tutto oltre 1100 strumenti musicali.iole, violoncelli, chitarre, arpe; in quest'ambito è universalmente riconosciuto come uno dei migliori.
Lo squero di San Trovaso sorge lungo il rio omonimo e risale a prima del Seicento. Squero è il tipico cantiere veneziano dove si creano, costruiscono e riparano le imbarcazioni di dimensioni contenute come gondole, pupparini, sandoli, sciopòni e altre barche tipiche della tradizione lagunare veneziana. Il termine squero deriva dalla parola "squara" che indica una squadra di persone che cooperano per costruire le imbarcazioni. È uno dei pochissimi squeri ancora in funzione a Venezia. L'edificio che lo ospita ha la forma tipica delle case di montagna, circostanza eccezionale per Venezia. Il motivo è duplice: da una parte tanto i carpentieri quanto il legname da costruzione provenivano dal Cadore, dall'altra l'inclinazione del piazzale antestante e la tettoia che in parte lo ricopre erano utili in caso di pioggia, oltre che come deposito per gli strumenti di lavoro.
