Is there an Italian name for the doorway curtains found especially in towns in the Venice lagoon, such as Burano? How would a local go about purchasing these?

    I'd guess a local would go to a local store and hand over cash and get the doorway covering of their choice /s

  • I think you will find more relevant information on our sister site about Italian (italian.stackexchange.com). I have mixed feeling what it is the more appropriate site, but possibly it depends on the kind of answer you want (more linguistic and similar words; or more touristic/cultural/use) Jul 2, 2021 at 12:14
  • @GiacomoCatenazzi yes, I wasn't sure either... I will try over on the other site as well, but I do think this is more of a cultural/travel question, because certain Italian towns do not do this, and others have them on nearly every door

  • @PeterM I'm sure you're not far off, but this striped drape style is a little too distinct and coordinated to just be a random shopping choice ;)
