Forget going to Murano with every other tourist – go straight to MAURO I found out about Mauro and his shop here on TripAdvisor and due to the excellent reviews he received, I knew I had to make stopping here a "must" on my trip to Italy. I was not disappointed. He showed us how he made one of his... More

Mauro is a wonderful man and a very talented artist. After purchasing a piece in his shop he offered to give us a demonstration. For the next 20 minutes we watched him put layer after layer on the blob of molten glass he was working. Then like pure magic he transformed it into a lifelike shell right before our eyes.... More

My 13 year old son had a specific request - a pigeon - as he fell in love with the Venetian birds (to some they may be vermin but not us - we think they're beautiful). Mauro not only made us a beautiful glass bird but he also took the time to hand deliver it to our hotel as we... More

We booked a 45 minute demo with Mauro but at the end of it I asked a question about blown glass and he jumped right into a second demo of a blown glass shell. The penguin demo was a lot of fun but the shell demo was absolutely amazing. He freely answers any questions you might have and is patient... More

Mauro is a great glass artist and teacher of thr art. We arrived early but he was kind enough to let us start early. He is very detailed and informative when he is explaining what he is doing. He charges a fee for the demo but it is well worth it. He waivers it if you purchase one of his... More

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
