Walking away from the touristic route in Venice you have the magic opportunity to see the real people. It is sad to realize that Venice is mostly populated by old people. The youngest have left to move in a more convenient place as it is hard to find a job in town and it is very uncomfortable to commute from Venice to the inland.
Old people in Venice are a great source of information, they know lots of story and they can't wait to share with everybody willing to know.
This old man was walking around and saw us looking up a strange building, he stopped and, without being asked it started telling us about the place, it was a old factory that used to make matches with sulphur, nowaday it have been restored in an apartments complex and only part of the old chimney is left.
Shopping is an issue in Venice, everybody who have been there know how many are the bridges and stairs to climb up and down. People need to be a smart shopper, buy the essential and from the closest shop. They also use those chart a lot to help them self carry the goods.
