My sister, daughter and I were visiting Venice for one day, and had read about Mauro on this site. I wanted to see ho w they make beautiful glass art, but was turned off when I read the reviews about Murano. When I found out about Mauro, we had to go! It was just what I wanted! A small shop, where the artist is working as he talks to you! Mauro was extremely friendly and willing to share his knowledge with us as he worked. He made a beautiful penguin for my younger daughter (who was home with my husband!) right in front of our eyes!!! That penguin now has a special place in our home and always in our hearts! Watching him work was fascinating to me, and I have a new appreciation for glass pieces. We found Mauro to be very well spoken (in English!) and were able to photograph him as he worked! A definite plus for my younger daughter, since she couldn't be with us! We now consider Mauro a good friend after spending some time with him on our only day in Venice - but it was well worth our time. Finding his shop, which is on a small street, was a bit daunting, but once we found him, we were thrilled we didn't give up. Can't wait to go back and visit him again!
