Photographer's Note

Certainly no other place in the world rivals Murano's tradition in ornamental glass making. Vetreria Ducale in Murano offers free demonstrations performed by master glass blowers, who in a matter of minutes transform blobs of molten glass in pieces of art. The few minutes are absolutely sufficient to convince the viewer that this is indeed tough work requiring plenty of training. Highly recommended.
Finding the place is easy, because it is less than five minutes away from the main vaporetto station and usually employees will try to attract the tourists as soon as these step off the boat. Immediately after the demonstration the visitors are funneled into the large Murano glass show rooms, which are recommended only to those who can afford expensive souvenirs.
Murano is one of the islands forming the city of Venice.
