TIGW Tours By Nexa – MURANO: HOW A MURRINA IS MADE

09-25-2022

The TIGW Tours by Nexa for Sunday 25 September are dedicated to Murrina glassmaking!

September 25 - MURANO

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.
