Located off the shore of Venice, Italy, the island of Murano was a commercial port as far back as the 7th Century. By the 10th Century it had become a well-known city of trade. Today Murano remains a destination for tourists, and art and jewelry lovers alike.
Murano’s reputation as a center for glassmaking was born when the Venetian Republic, fearing fire and destruction to the city’s mostly wood buildings, ordered glassmakers to move their foundries to Murano in 1291. Murano glass is still interwoven with Venetian glass.
“Personally i think that the Internet as an incredible vehicle to expand the uniqueness of our murano glass fine art in the world and we joined this challenge with our first web site called soffiatoglass.it. The area where i live near Venice, together with the creativeness of its people, had so much to offer to our customers that by the beginning of 2007 we decided to bring our Internet presence to the next level. And so, combining technology, creativity, and a strong management team, we have created muranostore.com. We hope you enjoy browsing our store and please send your comments help us make muranostore.com your favorite place to shop on the web.”
