History of Murano Glass

I have always been fascinated with Murano glass and have become even more curious about it since we have started selling Maestro Imperio Rossi’s products. This has led me to wanting to know the history of Murano glass. After reading countless articles online I have created my own article: Murano Glass History.

I had to reconcile a few conflicting facts and, as it is sometimes is the case with history, could not rely on a definitely correct source. So if you find some inaccuracies in my article please point them out. I look forward to talking to Sara Rossi about this as I am sure that I will be able to fill a lot of gaps. The research was very interesting, though. I did not know about the quest to make clear glass, and did not know that clear glass was accomplished in Murano.

I also left a few tidbits of history out because I want to research them some more. I expect to update the article after my trip to Murano in March.
