The glass furnaces of Murano open their doors to the public.
Consorzio Promovetro, managing authority for the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark is launching The Murano Glass Experience: a cultural itinerary to discover the Venetian glassmaking tradition, conceived and created in collaboration with Artsystem – a service company devoted to foster contacts between public and private through the language of cultural heritage.
An intinerary will accompany visitors to the Murano Glass Museum, where the works of unique millennial tradition and technique are placed, and then to observe the glass masters at work in their furnaces, where the magic of glass still lives today where the secrets of Murano Glass companies will be revealed.
Each of the three itinerary, Glass Art in Venice, Murrine from Design to Jewelry and Venetian Mirrors, was conceived as a unique opportunity of discovery. The fulcrum of this concrete experience will be the union between tradition and innovation, hidden in each product created by the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark companies.
With this initiative – says Luciano Gambaro, President of Consorzio Promovetro – Promovetro wants to create, for the attentive visitor, some didactive and institutional itineraries placed between past and present. We want to to retrace the most important stages of the Murano glass millennial history and lead it to the now, in a furnace or laboratory where still unique pieces are realized, sensitizeing the visitor to buy authentic products, guaranteed by the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark.
Visits are from Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to about 12:00 am.
