For hundreds of years the art of working Murano glass has been preciously kept in the hands of the Murano glass masters who, from generation to generation, have handed down the secrets of techniques and compositions to create "the colour of Murano glass".
Today, thanks to the Abate Zanetti Glass School in Murano
The knowledge and experience of local craftsmen are made available to those who wish to learn this centuries-old art, which continues to exert an undeniable fascination.
Through the involvement of the masters of Murano glass, artists, craftsmen, professionals and some of the most prestigious Venetian institutions, the School has become a laboratory, a meeting and cultural exchange centre at international level.
Not only a formidable promotional tool, therefore, but also an opportunity for analysis and planning aimed at triggering new systems and development processes.
In the various workshops, students learn hot working and blowing glass in the furnace, lampworking, enamel and gold leaf decoration, engraving, grinding and fusing techniques.
Far from being addressed only to those already working in the sector, the courses activated by the Abate Zanetti Glass School are deeply diversified according to the users.
