Murano Glass is one of the symbols of Italian made-in-Italy heritage conveyed through the ancient skills and everlasting passion of our Glassmaking Artisans. Initially conceived as everyday objects glass items rapidly grew among the likes of the richer Venice Aristocracy in the 11th century who particularly enjoyed glassware items, sculptures, and vases. The production of glass in fact reached its peak by the late 1200s when Venice was started to be considered the Capital of Glass thanks to its highly skilled glassworkers who established themselves in the near Isle of Murano. By the end of the 11th century then furnaces that were placed on the main island were moved to Murano, making the little island the center of glass production in Italy. Glassmaking production however was not created in Venice, it takes back to the Age of the Roman Empire when Rome managed trade with the Orient and was influenced by the oldest glassmaking techniques. As result, Venice, being one of the greatest trade hubs in the country, not only became the focus of glass items commerce but also the greatest glass manufacturer in the world.
