Venice has a long history of glass making. In the 13th century, the glass factories were moved to the nearby island of Murano to reduce the risk of fires in Venice proper, and glass making continues on Murano today.
Here's a sweet little street shrine on Murano showing "Madonnina dei Vetrai" (Our Lady of the Glassmakers).
Also on Murano, a strange glass sculpture. It looks too fragile to be displayed outside.
Another modern glass sculpture in Murano~
Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend. :)
