Simone Cenedese Glass Factory, Murano

Factory Tour · Tour
We are a glass factory founded in the 70s on Murano island, Venice by Giovanni Cenedese who poured into his production all the technical know-how and artistic sensibility.

He leads soon his company to distinguish for the high level of its production, above all chandeliers and sculptures, for the chromatic range of the pure and bright colors of its glassware, for the reckless attitude to experimentation, for the willingness to realize on project, for the high competence of an highly qualified staff.

Giovanni’s son Simone, begins very soon in the glass furnace of the father and he is nowadays one of the more requested and appreciated Murano Master glass maker. He has a strong personality and realizes with the glass unthinkable pieces ( from glass beds to monumental glass sculptures ) and he collaborates with artists and designers who make use of his experience.

Today all this is contained in the new brand SimoneCenedese and relaunched with the ordinary quality for a new look of Murano glass.

  • This is a friend of Laurel P, Susan Lawrence, sharing my experience in Murano, Venezia. It was extraordinary and a must visit when you go to Murano! You will enter a long corridor into Simone Cenedese' gallery of many exquisite glass objects displayed along the way. And you will be greeted by Anna who will show you through rooms of beautiful objects, sculptures, vases, mirrors, chandeliers and much more. For Simone is prolifically creative with such a wide range of expression and all so full of beauty, it will take your breath away. To add to all this, you will be shown into the work areas where the furnaces and the crew of assistants along with Simone will demonstrate the creation of a glass piece, simply to share with you the marvel of this art form. The generosity and the aesthetic quality displayed here is so remarkable that it was the highlight of a week long trip to Venice and a memory I shall always cherish. Susan Lawrence
  • Great experience, but get there early they close at the exact time, no exceptions.
  • The service was special. The glassware is superb. Incredible quality and attention to detail in every way. Absolutely recommended !
  • One of the best and most genuine glass makers on Murano. We stepped in to an unassuming store front and found beautiful contemporary pieces of glass and extremely helpful sales people with no pressure to buy at all. We bought a relatively cheap glass necklace late one afternoon and were told that if we had time in the rest of out trip they'd be happy to show us the glass workshop. We came back a few days later and got to see the craftsmanship behind their items. Again no pressure to buy at all but we loved some of the pieces so inevitably did. I can say they all arrived in the UK safe and sound and packed by the factory in layer upon layer of protection. Could not recommended highly enough.
