TIGW Tours By Nexa – Murano: GLASS - BRIDGING CRAFTSMANSHIP AND ART THROUGH THE GENERATIONS

09-24-2022

The two TIGW Tours by Nexa for Saturday, September 24th in Murano will focus on the different techniques and processes that bear witness to the rare manual skill and unmistakable creativity that have made and will continue to make Murano glass famous worldwide.

September 24, 2022 - MURANO

The afternoon tour will take you to discover Murrina glassmaking! Without a shadow of a doubt the best known of the many techniques used by the Murano glassmakers, it is perhaps also the oldest! In fact, its origins date back to the time of the ancient Romans when, in 61 B.C., Pompey brought back from Alexandria some vases called "murrha" which, with their colourful reflections, became one of the most sought-after luxury goods in the ancient world. Today, the term 'murrine' refers to small miniature mosaics made from glass canes that are revealed when the cane is cut into thin cross-sections. Are you curious to learn more and see how a murrina is created? Our guide will take you to the Vianello Murrine workshop where Davide will show you the fascinating artistic process of making a millefiori murrina using complex techniques that are a family secret, handed down through the generations.
