Come with us in a furnace of Murano!

The BEST WESTERN PREMIER Hotel Sant’Elena suggests you a special venue to visit during you holiday in Venice!
Experience the art of glass blowing and meet the masters, who have been creating works of arts for decades!

 

 

You just need to ask at the reception, they would be glad to help you or organize your trip to Murano thanks to a one-way shuttle free of charge that will bring you directly to the furnace “Vetreria Ducale”.
The furnaces of Murano are typical industrial buildings focused on production and demonstration of glass working operations. They represent today a meeting point between the past and the future of art glass. In particular they combine a desire to aggregate the multiple realities of the contemporary glass landscape and a thousand years of tradition and technical expertise typical of the island of Murano.

Special demonstrations are organized every day for spending a day with glass in a real furnace.

 

 

 

 

During these demonstrations you can observe the processes of lampworking, glassblowing and massif-working performed by experienced master glassmakers or educational workshop on glass fusing.

At the end of the visit you can usually visit the show rooms, where are exhibited beautiful glassware in ancient and modern style.
Also children will enjoyed the excursion: watch the video aired in the SKY TV channel Easy Baby!
