The glassblowing art is recognized in all the world as a synonym of beauty.
Venetians mould too many things with glass that were used daily, like cups, glasses, dishes, mirrors and lamps. This art of moulding the glass in all these shapes, was one of the most safeguarded secrets in the Venetian Republic.
