Learn the history of Murano glass blowing in Saint Mark's Square.
Assist a master glass blower to create your glass gift using ancient techniques to remember this experience (30 minutes approx.).
Visit a glass factory showroom to see different types of glass production.

A great experience that will bring you to know the manufacture and glassblowing art. In front of you a glass craftsman master will create a unique item while he is showing and explaining the ancient technique phases of the production. You will discover this ancient art came from Romans who, on the run from the barbarians, established the city of Venice.

You can feel the warmth, the smells and the sounds of the furnace and you will see the clever hands of the artisan mould the glass in front of your eyes and then, like magic, it will be transformed into  an unrepeatable object, thanks to the work of a millennial artisan culture that is handed down from one generation to another. The glassblowing art is recognized in all the world as a synonym of beauty.

Venetians mould too many things with glass that were used daily, like cups, glasses, dishes, mirrors and lamps. This art of moulding the glass in all these shapes, was one of the most safeguarded secrets  in the Venetian Republic.

You will live this experience in Saint Mark's Square in an old Glass Factory Showroom and you will have the possibility to know and see the principal objects that are made with glass.

At the end of your experience we will give a little glass gift for each couple or each family, as a souvenir of this visit.
