Here are a few shots taken in the Gino Mazzuccato glass making factory on the island of Murano, located about a mile north of Venice. The Murano glassmakers are renowned for producing some of the most important brands of glass worldwide. Having originally being located on Venice, the glassmakers were ordered by the government in 1291 to move to Murano owing to the increased risk of fire to Venice’s infrastructure, which was predominantly constructed of wood. Should you ever visit Venice then it is likely that Murano will form part of your itinerary.
