There is a reason Mauro has so many excellent reviews - he provides an excellent show. It is partly educational, partly creative and partly magical. Watching a lump of glass become a penguin was quite something, and having it all explained, and being able to ask questions was excellent. Not the cheapest of activities, but a real treat. Highly recommended

I had read about Mauro's shop on TripAdvisor and decided to visit when I got to Venice as I wanted a glass shell to go with one I bought 21 years ago in Australia. Mauro is a gentleman and a true craftsman, he took the time out to give us a great demonstration, he is extremely passionate about his work.... More

We had read about Mauro's shop and demonstrations on Trip Advisor and since we did't really want to spend the time to go to Murano thought this would be a great break from the typical sight-seeing and crowds of Venice. We arrived at Mauro's shop (no issues finding it with Google Maps) to unfortunately find the windows dark and door... More

Being a glass artist I have a heavy basis for other glass people. Mauro is no acceptation to this great group of people. Mauro took the time to demonstrate to my friend what lampwork glass is, something I haven't done in the 8 years I have know her. LOL. He also took time to take us for drinks and show... More

We emailed Mauro just prior to leaving for Venice, and fortunately he was free to see my husband and I. Mauro spent almost an hour with us and happily answered all of our questions during his demonstration. We had a very enjoyable time, learning the basics and observing the magic ! We purchased one of Mauro's pieces and it will... More

For me as a lampworker it was so nice to come back to Mauro's place after being there earlier this year. But this time I was there with my family and now they also could enjoy him working behind the torch. The last time I saw him made a seashell and now it was a beautifull clownfish! Mauro is a... More

We booked an appointment with Mauro by emailing him. If you go to his website, his email is located there. He said that it was 20 euro a person to watch him make something which would last about 20-30 minutes. However, if you decide to buy something, the money will go toward that purchase. I decided to buy the shell... More

We had seen reviews of Mauro's demonstration and thought it would be a great way to see real glass making without schlepping our family of five to Murano. It was even better than we'd hoped! Mauro is not only an amazing craftsman but also charming, informative, and welcoming. We did not feel pressured to buy but did purchase a couple... More

There are not enough words that can describe how amazing Mauro and his skills are. We emailed in advance to advise the dates of our visit, he emailed back very promptly advising of our appointment time. We arrived a little disheveled after following google maps (which aren't the best in Venice!!) he put the air con in to cool us... More

We saw the great reviews of Mauro's studio and just had to visit on our pre-cruise trip to Venice. He did not disappoint. My family of four, after enduring a red-eye flight from the US and Venice's notorious "streets" (not the canals, but the alleyways that too often end in a canal or a wall) finally found Mauro's studio (not...
