My husband, an engineer, especially liked our visit to Mauro's glass blowing studio in Venice. Both of us appreciated Mauro's skill at creating beautiful, natural objects, reminiscent of diving in coral reefs, walking in a forest or on a beach, all from glass! I enjoyed the adventure of finding Mauro's studio amidst the bridges and waterways of Venice (and we... More

My friend and I visited Mauro in his studio last Saturday (5th April 2014) We were unsure if what to expect but had read very good reviews on trip advisor so knew we were in for something special. Mauro was very generous with his time and his English was excellent... Talking us through each stage of the glass blowing process.... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our private glass blowing demonstration by Mauro when we visited Venice at the end of September 2013. He was very informative as we watched him turn a small piece of glass into a beautiful sea shell and allowed us to take lots of pictures. Be sure to email Mauro and let him know when... More

Mauro kindly agreed to provide a demonstration on very short notice. We brought along our 4 kids (teens to preschooler) and we all enjoyed the experience. He provided great information and funny stories while bringing a clown fish to life. We all had a great time. Thanks again Mauro!

The glass Master Mauro Vianello was very kind with us and he answered to all our questions about his amazing work.. We saw him working at the torch and we took some fantastic pics.

Mauro is an extremely talented "old-school" glass artisan. He takes so much pride in his craft that it was a thrill to experience his talent in person. If you want to stop by for a demonstration, you need to set an appointment in advance. Just email Mauro and let him know the days that you will be in Venice, and... More

Today my husband and I enjoyed a visit to the workshop of Mauro Vianello, and observed his skill and artistry with glass in person. Not only is Mauro a craftsman, but he is also a great communicator. His work is impressive and a joy to behold as it comes to life. I recommend a visit to anyone, it is truly... More

After reading about Mauro's shop on Trip Advisor I knew I had to visit. Mauro was kind enough to make a shell in front of me. It was amazing to watch so I returned the next day with my husband to ask Mauro to make a large octopus for us whilst we go on a cruise for 7 days. Whilst... More

You shouldn't leave Venice without seeing a glass demonstration, and this is the best place to do so. Mauro is a talented artist and very friendly as well. He speaks fluent English and takes you through the glassmaking process with explanations, and allows you to take photos/videos. Afterwards you can buy souvenirs from his shop. The shells are especially pretty!... More

Four of us, two mature couples, visited Mauro in early September after arranging a visit over the internet. He is amazing to watch and we were all fascinated with his making of a sea horse. If you arrange and keep your appointment he is happy to do the demonstration for free. Of course I couldn't resist the temptation to buy... More
