MURANO E IL VETRO
I primi documenti che ci giungono sull'arte vetraria veneziana risalgono all'anno 982 d.C., anno in cui compare il nome di un artigiano vetraio a Venezia, quindi possiamo supporre che quest'arte, tuttora attiva, sia più che millenaria in tutto il mondo. Dopo il 982 si ebbe la conferma dell'esistenza di altri vetrai veneziani, ma nel XIII secolo il predominio risultò nettamente degli artigiani muranesi. Ciò fu dovuto al fatto che le vetrerie si concentrarono naturalmente nell'isola di Murano, tanto che nel 1291 lo Stato stabilì la distruzione di vetrerie costruite a Venezia deputandone a Murano l'origine storica, tanto è vero che al giorno d'oggi alcune dinastie vetrarie hanno prodotto la loro attività ininterrottamente.
