Murano glass



it’s the “island of glass” in front of Venice, where in 1291
the Venetian Republic decreed the prohibition of the production of glass
in Venice for a fire hazard.
The skilled glassmakers moved to the island, where even today, after 800
years, it has been handed down from father to son the art of glass making.
Murano glass is unique and loved worldwide for the particularity of its
craftsmanship. It is characterized by bright colors that come from the
“murrine” (small pieces of colored glass) prepared by the master
glassmaker on the molten glass in the “furnace”, and then blown
and shaped.
