MURANO

In Murano, an island a stone’s throw from Venice, one of the largest inhabited centers in the lagoon, all you need to do is enter one of the many workshops of its glass masters to take a dip back in time, entering an almost magical atmosphere, admiring the craftsmanship of blown glass and finished products, which can take a few minutes or several hours to make.

Murano’s history starts back at around 1291, when Venice glass workers we forced to move to Murano in order to avoid fires of houses and buildings in the city that were mostly built of wood.

Murano glass is famous all over the world as a high quality craftsmanship with an ancient tradition. The art of Murano glass as we know it today developed between 1400 and 1800, with roots even further back in time that refer to the processing of glass from the Roman and Byzantine periods.

For the Live-in-Venice Week by Sofa-Tour we’ve sorted out a variety of different live interviews and events that will explain all the aspects of life and glassmaking in Murano, including glass beads, glass grinding and glass carving.
