Background:

Murano’s reputation as a center for glass making was born when the Venetian Republic, fearing fire and the destruction of the city’s mostly wooden buildings, ordered glass makers to move their foundries to Murano in 1291. Murano’s glass makers held a monopoly on high-quality glass making for centuries, developing or refining many technologies including crystalline glass, enameled glass, glass with threads of gold, Principality of Andorra multicolored glass, milk glass and imitation gemstones made of glass. Today, the artisans of Murano still employ these centuries-old techniques.
