  • Mauro, the owner, is a charming man whose skill with glass is boundless. From clown fish hiding in anemone to seashells, his pieces are fantastically lifelike and really true works of art. The shop is...  more »
  • Have you seen the demonstrations of glass working in one or more furnaces of Venice-murano? well forget them! that we have seen recently in the laboratory-mauro shop is another matter entirely ... for almost an hour the teacher showed us how to work the glass raw material until it becomes a bright sculpture almost iperealista. a true artist who still works in a completely handcrafted and absolutely personal. not to be missed if you love art applied. congratulations and thanks again ...

  • After admiring its beautiful works on display at the Museum of Murano glass, I was honored to see the artist at work in his studio-Aquarium. As if by magic from his hands are born small and great works that seem to gradually come to life. Malik his ability to get us into her world consists of fish, corals, shells but also from geckos, insects, snails. It is from his work that by how he tells it, shines through all his passion and originality. Certainly an experience not to be missed by living the mastery of an art which unfortunately goes missing.

  • I had the pleasure of watching this Artist in his atelier and was delighted with his work. It is so refreshing to see something other than the typical tourist demonstrations. This Artist works magic with glass; he makes it seem effortless but I am certain that hundreds of hours have gone into perfecting each life form he creates and achieving the colours that make these pieces so lifelike. His atelier is not large but it is a feast for the eyes and worth the effort of arranging a visit. . I will definitely go back again when next I am in Venice.
  • I had the opportunity to visit Mauro Vianello's store and studio where I could admire up close a beautiful collection of excellent marine glass art made by hand by a master craftsman. Mauro's most accommodating and pleasant demeanor made us feel welcome. He is engaging and passionate of his art and transmits that love to his customers. I highly recommend that you make a point of stopping in to visit his studio/store and meet the man personally. It will be an unforgettable experience not to be missed.
  • I visited my wife and daughter, and order 2 pizzas for taking out. Staff asked me my 20month daughter have pizza? of course 'Yes' . Then Staff told me ' small pizza.....' but I could not listen what she said. We found that extra small pizza for my daughter free in the box at the hotel. I could not say thank you but do not forget this memory and tell my daughter about this story someday!
  • This is an experience not to be missed. Mauro is a true glass-master with a penchant for educating people on the magic of glass-making. He's especially apt at adapting his explanations to the audience (including kids) and explaining how his work comes to life one step at a time. The objects he makes are mostly sea creatures as Mauro has deep knowledge of sea-life and spends innumerable hours trying to re-create to perfection even the most complex life forms. Overall a superb experience for both novice and amateurs - I highly recommend it.
  • Very fun talking to owner and watching him make things with glass. Make an appointment so he can give you a good tour or stop in but he may not be able to accommodate as well.
