Venice has been much more "island" than what we are able to imagine today while we admire it in all is splendor.
Venice has always had a complexity of life, expecially in the past, very different from the mainal despite its proximity; the city was full of shops and "fonteghi" (warehouses) located at the ground floor of every house between the alley ("calle") and facing the canal.
These work places and traiding posts allowed the flourishing of commerce, craftmanship and the cit'y self-sufficiency.
The renovation of these particular places, nowadays left unused, are now passion of deeply fond of tradition architects.
That's how "Casa Ruiz" was born, named after the Ruiz family, who owned a southamerican coffee and spices company dealing with venetian merchants. the house was used as warehouse for coffee, spices, ceramic an metal artifacts.
The building is not very high, horse shoe shaped with an opening on the fondamenta and the canal. It was partly divided and partly lifted up recently but the charm of the place is intact, mostly due to the private courtyard that the house embraces.
The renovation has unveiled all the typical characteristics of this kind of buildings: enormous windows in every room, an exit on the courtyard and massive beams painted on the high ceiling, with walls that are now and then interrupted by intertwining chimeys used for the processing of roasting coffe beans. at the moment "Casa Ruiz" is a comfortable house located in an interesting part of the city, for those guests who hope tp get to know a difference Venice, within its squares and alleys eternally the same.
It will be easy to reach the usual tourist-attraction places and at the same time to take shelter in a quiet space as the backyard at home.
