Venice’s oldest paper shop occupies a small piazza between the Campo Gritti and Campo San Maurizio. Through one set of windows you can view a workroom with stacks of papers and art in progress just as it may have looked when the company was founded in 1900. Next door, in the showroom are shelves of hand-printed sheets of paper and desk accessories and books. Signs warn that anything you touch you own, so this is more for the serious shopper than the browser, but it does feel more authentic than the Il Papiro shops around town, as though the ink has just dried on the goods.
