Paolo Visits the Armenians: A Mini Documentary

Venice is a city on the brink for many artisans, including Paolo Olbi, the focus of this film featurette. In the month of August 2014, journalist Robert Eric Shoemaker followed Olbi for a few days out of each week, exploring his shop, history, and friends. One day, Shoemaker was invited to accompany Olbi on a sojourn to acquire space in a palazzo for a new shop, leading to the Armenian encounter that begins this documentary.
