TVGW Tours By Nexa - MURANO: How a Murrina is made
Event organised by Nexa Event & Travel Designers
Both tours of Saturday, 9th September will take us to discover Murrina glassmaking! Without doubt the best known among the 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. Today, the term 'murrine' refers to small miniature mosaics made from glass canes cut into thin cross-sections. Our guide will take you to the Vianello Murrine workshop where Davide will show you the fascinating artistic process of making a “millefiori” using complex techniques, a family secret handed down through the generations.
