Andrea Tagliapietra

Andrea Tagliapietra is the first Venetian participating in the project ‘Venetians in Venice about Venice’. Andrea is the 3rd generation wooden boat builder, as well as boat designer. Family business ‘Cantinerie Tagliapietra’ in Guidecca-Venice is now part of very vivid consortium of boat builders, as well as other businesses, offices, modern flats etc. in the area behind Redentore church. In the past years, Andrea also moved his business to Florida for some years. His profound relation to water and especially Venice lagoon is his motivation for his creative approach, especially in boat building design, for tradition of ‘living with water’ typical for Venice.
