Murano and venetian glass

Venetian glass has always represented a synonym of elegance and good taste, but not many people know the real millenary story of its fascinating and current nuances. Venetian glass boasts a millenary tradition as the first document that provides evidence of an active glass workshop in Venice dates back to more than one thousand years ago, precisely in 982.


In the dark periods of the history of humanity, in the middle ages, the art of Venetian glass, the heir of Islamic and Byzantine traditions, was characterised by the high level of its production.


Halfway between the thirteenth century and the fourteenth century important noble families from Europe had ordered glasses from important Venetian glass workshops, still to be found in the museums.


With the use of numerous and simple iron equipment, the glass experts model glass with the skills and accuracy that no school could ever teach and, just like in an ancient medieval laboratory, youngsters can learn the techniques and the art from old experts with the humbleness required by those who want to work in the world of glass.


The roots of Venetian traditions lie in the strong desire to enhance the ductility of glass and its possibility of being blown and shaped, therefore giving vent to the fantasies of experts that cannot be compared with any other materials.


During the last century this historical and artistic heritage was enhanced with the production of important pieces that were inspired by the history of Venetian glass, also combining new techniques and solutions that give each piece the possibility of integrating with the environment with a strong sensation of class and taste.


Each piece, the result of careful and laborious historical research, is destined to be re-evaluated in time and in reality it represents a unique piece as it has been made exclusively by hand without the help of moulds and modern equipment.
