Murano glass is known all over the world and remains forever attached to the island of Murano where it was born.
A long history indeed and a centuries-old tradition, since the first furnaces installed in Murano date back to the thirteenth century, probably due to the arrival of Byzantine craftsmen who came to take refuge in Venice after the sacking of Constantinople.
Since that time, the master glassmakers have jealously guarded the secrets of the manufacture of Murano glass, not hesitating throughout history to eliminate offenders who, in exchange for a little money and a social position, would have been able to deliver their skills.
Moreover, the glassmakers have largely participated in the fame of Venice and its wealth to the point that we find in Murano Casin, places of pleasure and money that will give their names to our contemporary casinos.
Murano is also the name of great glassmakers involved in contemporary creation, such as Barovier & Toso, a company founded in 1295, Seguso, Pauly or Venini, whose pieces are sought after by collectors.
