In Burano, in the Venetian Lagoon, an old lady still dedicates herself with an ancient passion to lace. The lace-maker lives in a modest dwelling and can not hide the difficulties of going on between excessive taxes and the lack of adequate economic returns from this now ancient activity. The lady lives alone. She follows the modalities of a time in the realization of the artifact: she is an artisan of the highest level, a teacher in her field. But local crafts can not keep up with the globalization, too expensive to carry out and is destined to disappear, under the weight of an abundant mass-produced trinkets, of poor material, produced in China and sold at very low prices on stalls that staged the sad spectacle of a country reduced to a brand.
