Activity description

This is a tour of the island of Murano that includes entry into one of the oldest glass foundries to see the master glassmakers at work. What may come as a surprise, is that Venetian blown glass dates back to the 8th century, when the Romans used the knowledge of the glass they acquired from the Byzantine Empire and the East. Until the 1960s, many were not sure that the tradition of glass manufacturing originated here in Murano and was also believed to be much less ancient than it actually is. However, in the 1960s archaeologists discovered a glass furnace on a Venetian island dating back to the 8th century AD. which allowed then to go back to the origins of this ancient manufacturing tradition, allowing also to discover what made the island so important from this point of view on the international scene. During the tour we will also focus on the configuration of the island itself and we will visit the famous Church of Santa Maria and San Donato, which boasts some of the most ancient mosaics of the Venetian Lagoon.
