Drinking in Veneto: PROSECCO - a Dry or Extra Dry white sparkling wine made from Glera ("Prosecco") grapes. Venetians consider Prosecco an ideal apperitivo or ombrette (pick-me-up). APEROL is the perfect aperitf. As coffee time, which is one of the main after-lunch ceremonies, the 'aperitivo' before the evening meal, its absolutely an adequate and enjoyed tradition since the Romans. APEROL SPRITZ - it's probably the most popular drink in Veneto. BEER is less popular in Italy, but exists. The best known Italian beer: "la Peroni". And finally GRAPPA - uniquely Italian drink, has been around since the Middle Ages. For generations, Italians have sipped this "firewater" after meals and even added a little to their morning espresso, to "correct" it.
Piazza dei Signori is the lively central square, lined with cafès. It is the classic Italian piazza, where people use to stroll around or sit outdoor at a bar table sipping a coffee, a glass of Prosecco wine or a spritz, pecking at the typical Venetian’s finger food, the so-called cicchetti, looking at people passing by...they say it is the Italians’ favourite passtime, isn’it?

One of the many independent stores dotted around the island. You could spend a whole day just wondering around getting lost in the maze of streets whilst popping into any random store along the way...

After about a 45 minute taxi ride, our first furniture vendor, Royal (the English name he has taken), greeted us at an intersection in his part of the metropolis and then drove us in his van to his furniture warehouse. His warehouse offered us rows and rows of stacked furniture to choose from. Not being air conditioned, the place was hot, humid, dimly lit and dusty; ah, warehouse shopping in Shanghai. Hand-selecting our furniture is very important to us and we think to our customers. This process allows us to inspect each piece by seeing and touching, looking inside drawers, testing finishes, accessing the craftsmanship and to ask questions from the suppliers. We have rejected many pieces because they didnot meet our standards. We felt comfortable with Royal's knowledge of the furniture and the furniture business. Royal's true passion is designing furniture with a new interpretation of Chinese style. We learned that he personally collects furniture, from around China, and restores and/or repairs the piece as needed in his warehouse. Over the centuries, much of the antique stock of furniture, in China, has been damaged due to neglect and the conditions in which they have been housed. We hand-selected about 45 pieces of furniture from his collection. try to reach Mr.Royal Hsu at 13621990301 or 13901685220 email:[email protected], and get to know where his warehouse is to see his chinese antique furniture collection.
