Let's not forget that one of the most important inventions of humanity happened in Murano, a beautiful small island next to Venice where glass making is very traditional, popular and unique. Galileo Galilei perfected his famous telescope using glass manufactured in Murano and later presented his revolutionary creation in Venice for approval and then to the world.
For centuries, the wealthiest members of royal houses in Europe requested different accessories made specifically from Murano glass, and there is a reason for this.
