Wonderful glass lesson with Davide! Made beads and learnt about glass, stretched it out, blew it, blobbed it, made beads, and learnt about the history of glass in Italy. Loved it, great location, highly recommended. Great school as well, with beautifully designed beads. Thanks Davide.

Davide Penso made learning to make glass beads a extraordinary adventure! This is the best way to truly experience the murano glass culture. Went home with a beautiful necklace and bracelet made by my daughter and myself, great bonding experience.
