Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Artigianato d'Arte di Vianello Mauro
Artisan glassmaker Mauro demonstrates his artistry by appointment at Artigianato d'Arte di Vianello Mauro. His artworks are for sale, too. If you buy a piece, the cost of your demonstration ticket will be deducted from the price of the object. This gregarious, passionate artist must let the piece made at the demonstration dry for one day, so be prepared to return to pick it up. Please make your appointment at least two weeks in advance via email. No more than five people can attend at a time. To get to the tiny shop and studio, go through the Campo San Cassan, staying parallel to the Grand Canal.

We knew our time would be limited in Venice, and we probably wouldn't be able to visit Murano. Still, I wanted to see beautiful glass! My research for a glass artist in Venice turned up Mauro Vianello... more »
In a city plastered with tourist-centric glass art, Mauro's work truly stands out. His pieces are moving, beautiful, and emblematic of the time and attention he has put into them. Best of all, Mauro will let you schedule a lesson with him! My brothers and I booked a few hours during the week for our first glass-shaping experience, and it was amazing. Mauro is an excellent teacher, and at the end of the lesson you have a) some lovely handmade glass pieces, b) a reasonable understanding of the *basics* of working with glass, and c) a newfound appreciation for the skill and care that Mauro has cultivated for his art. The lesson was so much fun that we came back 3 days later for a second lesson before heading back the USA. 5/5 cannot recommend highly enough!
Wonderful experience speaking to such an innovative artist. He took time to explain not only the craft but also what makes his approach unique. Beautiful works of art. Truly worth the time to see a world class artisan.
