Set in seven small islets and crossed by a wide canal, Murano is the island of glass excellence. It is the cradle of a craftsmanship of an ancient tradition, which dates back to 982, initially conducted in Venice. In 1291, the glassmakers were forced to move to this island to avoid fire hazards.
Murano was initially set by the Romans and during the invasions it gave shelter to the people of the region. In the 15th century, the island reached its popularity as a resort for Venetians and many palaces were built, very few of them still existing. The secret of the production of glass and crystal was kept for many centuries, till the glass makers began to travel abroad bringing their craft with them.
