Not any old shop this, Banco Lotto No. 10 sells beautiful period costumes for purchase and hire but also unique contemporary clothing, accessories, jewellery, sequin covered handbags and exquisite cushions.. All these fabulous goods have been made by the 80 or so inmates of the Giudecca's woman's prison whom have been trained as high-skilled tailors.. Using the finest silks, threads, plush brocades and with a luxury label stitched onto the back this stuff could easily be sold with an extra number added onto their price tags..
Because all profits go back to the 'Case di Reclusione Femminile' to fund education and work experience for the female prisoners inside..
