We were told about Mauro's little shop by friends who had been there alone and with grandchildren and we weren't disappointed. Mauro closes his little shop and makes a clown fish out of glass as we watched. He was delightful and made his art come to life. Our 10 year old granddaughters were enthralled. Certainly worth the walk and price.... More

Mauro was wonderful to watch, he is very passionate about his work and his enthusiasm was infectious. Our 6 year old daughter watched captivated for 30 minutes while he produced a realistic looking sea shell out of glass. If you want to see big glass pieces then this is not the place for you, as Mauro specialises in small detailed... More

We had limited time in Venice and wanted to show our granddaughter a fine glass-blower without the trip to Murano. Wending our way to Mauro Vianello's studio on Via Santa Croce was an ideal solution. For a reasonable fee, he closes his shop and blows, shapes, twists and finesses, in our case, a horse and a fantastically colored shell. The... More

I had seen an article in a magazine about this glassblowing artist & was keen to see for myself if the content in the article was true. We arrived at the studio went in where Mauro told us he was waiting for an appointment ( later we found out the people who never showed had changed the appointment three times),... More

I have always wanted to go to Venice, my husband not so much! He felt like we were going to be ripped off with all the tourist shops. When we travel I don't buy a lot but what I buy is worth the money. We finally found this shop (not an easy thing to do) & Mauro was there with... More

Visited here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and was certainly not disappointed. Mauro was very helpful, accommodating and gave us a wonderful demonstration on how he crafts these beautiful and delicate works of Art. Left with a bundle of fragile items to remind us of the trip. He also recommended the "best fish restaurant in Venice" just down the ally... More

We visited Mauro's shop while vacationing in Venice and it was the best part of our trip! He was so welcoming and had the most amazing glass figurines I had ever seen. He gave us a 45 minute demonstration where he made a glass sea shell from scratch, and it was absolutely amazing! During the demonstration, he took the time... More

In addition to being a brilliant glassmaker, Mauro was very sweet and accommodating. He provided a glassmaking demo for me and my friends (as a perk for making a big purchase); it was very cool.. I would recommend it. He was able to make three custom glass figurines for me in less than 24 hours; they turned out pretty well... More

Every time we visit Venice, which is about once a year, a visit in Mauro Vianello´s studio is a must. This tiny little studio, not far from The Rialto Bridge and Rialto Fish Market, is filled to the brim with colourful glass, mostly fishes, shells and other sea creatures in all the shapes and colours you can imagine, and a...

We currently live in Italy and decided to pop down to Venice for a short overnight trip with friends and family. It had been years since I was in Venice and it was the first time I would be introducing my children to this dream-like city. The one thing I really wanted for them was to see a glass blowing...

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
