Your experience

Description

In the heart of St. Mark's Square you can watch the miracle coming closest. Unfortunately water is not turned into wine, but sand is transformed into an elaborate and unique glass creation. It includes a stove, a metal rod and a breath of fresh air. Literally.

Sitting in an old glass factory, you will watch as a local craftsman first removes a molten lump of glass from the fornax (the old Latin word for furnace) with a hollow metal rod.

Then he begins to shape it into a unique and tailor-made glass product. For example, if he is making a pot, he will use the rod to roll it around the table and make the main shape of the bulb. An elegant handle could be added to his hand with a pair of pliers and a skilful double hiss.

It's all very visceral and of course his breath is also an important tool (you have to visit him to find out why)

While the gentle heat of the oven blows around you, you could even imagine yourself going back to the 1200s.

Please note
