Description:

The Venetian island of Murano is synonymous with glass blowing. The history of Murano glass goes back to 1290, when the Venetian government transferred all glass production to Murano to protect Venice from accidental fires caused by the glass-blowing process. For over 720 years, Murano has been linked to this unusual, beautiful substance. In this book, Alessandro Marzo Magno recounts the history of this special glass.
