From the Ferrovia (Venice Santa Lucia Train Station) we will reach, with a private water boat, the island of Murano. You will have the chance to see the local ‘Maestro del Vetro’ (glass master) producing his work followed by some breathtaking pieces of art displayed inside the showroom of the glass factory… During working days, in the furnace we might meet in person Pino Signoretto, considered to be the Modern “Picasso” of the Art of Glass-blowing (Pino is also a friend of the famous American glass sculptor and entrepreneur Dale Chihuly and they have worked together before…).
I’m a Tour Leader and not a Licensed Guide and will not be able to guide you inside Churches, Galleries and museums.
