On the Road : Venice

Renown for it's canals and bridges, architecture, film and music influences, Venice epitomizes "La Dolce Vita".  


Venice is a city rich in culture that serves as a gateway to the island of Murano, where the 1000 year old art of glass blowing still resides today.

Murano:

Murano glassblowers excel in hot remolding of glass and blow exceptional forms that are delicately shaped using minimal tools.  No two are ever alike and each is a unique work of art.  Secret glass making books are passed down from fathers to sons in glass making families to insure the highly skilled craft continues to live in a mass produced society.

Join us as we meet artisans who years ago were business partners, friends today, who share the common goal of preserving the tradition and authenticity of a millennium long history.
