»» Things To Do in Venice at Christmas: Murano Glassmaking Festival

Those who are visiting Venice during the festive season have the big chance to have a close look to the traditional art of glassmaking of Murano.

With “Natale di Vetro“, Christmas event stretching from Venice’s campo Santo Stefano to Murano Island, celebrating the Murano’s traditional art of glassmaking, visitors can enjoy many Murano’s Glass themed events.

From “Tunnel of Lights”, precious, handmade Murano chandeliers, created especially for Christmas by the most skilful masters of the island, that will light up the ancient portico of the San Pietro Martire cloister, to the traditional Murano outdoor glassworks exhibition including a number of pieces provided by the most important galleries in the island, visitors will be able to enjoy unique glassworks and sculptures on display in Venice and in the streets and squares of Murano.

Other major events during “Natale di Vetro” include glass-blowing demonstrations, the Glassworks Regatta — racing along the Murano Grand Canal and involving boats representing a glassworks of Murano — and Furnace Food, traditional dinners held at various glass factories.

when: Dec 5, 2009 until Jan 6, 2010 (annual)
