BOCA DEL FOGO

The name “bocca del fuoco” comes from the hole the glass master use to insert the liquid Glass Doug to be manipulated. Using dedicated tools such as canes (perforated or not) or special instruments called “cazze”( shaped like big spoons) the masters pick up the glass to be then shaped.

Discover Murano by night, one of the most charming islands of Venice, crossing nine glass furnaces in full activity on a route lit up with candles.
Upon entering the Opificio (the workshop) you will be inebriated by blasts of hot air coming from the incandescent furnaces and by the smell of wet wood burned with the heat of the glass.

Upon your arrival you will enjoy an “ombra” (a glass of wine) and flavours typical of these islands.

Thank you for the passion and creativity Venezia Runners!
