Our family group of 7 (3 are 50+; 4 are between 20 and 23) made a reservation to see Mauro's demonstration on July 12th after I read about him on TripAdvisor. The rave reviews were on target--it was such a pleasure to watch this very talented artist at work, crafting a beautiful fish made of glass and silver leaf. My... More

We visited at the beginning of June as my boyfriend and I had never seen glass being blown before and we weren't keen on taking a trip to Murano for the short time we had in Venice. It was my boyfriend who emailed in advance to set the time to see this. Mauro was lovely and showed us a demonstration... More

Add my family and me as new fans of Mauro Vianello. Based on the glowing (and rightly deserved) reviews on TripAdvisor, we scheduled (in advance) a private glass-blowing demonstration with Mauro while we were in Venice in early July 2014. His quaint studio on Calle dei Morti resonated with an endearing, old-school ambience. We found Mauro to be charismatic and... More

I emailed Mauro a couple of weeks before our visit and booked an appointment for a demonstration. Mauro is a very friendly, skilled, craftsman who is obviously passionate about his work and is more than happy to share his experience and knowledge with you during a demonstration. We thoroughly enjoyed watching him create a gondola, our subject choice but with... More

My sister, mom and I just recently visited in May of 2014 to Venice, Italy. I had never seen glass blown before so I looked up the reviews on Tripadvisor to see where I could see a glass blowing demonstration. To my surprise, I came across many reviews of Mauro and his glass studio located in Venice, Italy! I arrived... More

I found Mauro here on TripAdvisor when I was looking for a more authentic glass experience than I had my first time I went to Venice when I went to Murano and felt disappointed. I emailed Mauro well before I left and set my appointment and he was waiting for me when I arrived and actually closed the door so... More

In April 2003, with an article recommending a Murano glassmaker in Venice, my friend and I headed to find Mauro Vianello. While successful in finding his shop, filled with his varied and beautiful creations, we found much more: a warm, charming Venetian. Then during the week, we stopped by daily for a short chat with our new friend and once... More

My husband and I had a great time during our visit to Mauro's studio. He took the time to explain each step and why it was important to the end product. We are both divers and are really impressed with the realism he is able to achieve in his glass sculptures. It took us less than 10 minutes to walk... More

I had the pleasure of meeting Mauro Vianello at his shop, where he does his beautiful craft of glass blowing. I was on a vacation with my sister and brother in law.
