Booked a 90 minute demonstration with Massimiliano and it was an absolute highlight on our visit to Venice. We learned the history of glass making and then watched a demonstration on the various types of glass art (blowing vs stretching, shaping, etc). Then we each...More
Me and my boyfriend went in there with both eyes open ready for a new experience, little did we know that this would be one of those memories that will last a lifetime.
Massimiliano is a great artist and also has the talent to make...More
We found Max online and booked his private glass working lesson. Over the 90min private lesson he demonstrated how to make a couple different glass pieces using different techniques and then he helped us to make our own glass souvenirs. It was an awesome experience...More

We had limited time in Venice and were unable to get over to the Island of Morano - famous for its glass products. We were recommended here by a local tour guide and were not disappointed. Although small and pokey and not easy to find,...More
We bought some glass jeweely from this little workshop a year ago and went back to buy some more. Massimiliano makes glass jewellery himself, using a huge variety of glasses - coloured, sparkling with metallic foils, and all attractive and reasonably priced. Worth a walk...More
It is a pleasure to visit Massimiliano to see him creating his glass works of art. He is increadably enthusiastic and it is clear to see that he loves working the glass. His prices are reasonable and he does not pressurise customers. Well worth a...More
Most of the tourist shops in Venice just sell the glass art and jewelry. However, this man actually makes it in front of your nose! He can actually customize it to your needs. We came by this little shop when walking the Free Walking Tour,...More
Had I not seen these delicate glass sculptures I would never have believed they were possible. Thankfully he also had a variety of jewelry that I felt would survive the trip home. It is the perfect place to buy presents for any ladies at home,...More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
