The bond between Venice and its traditions runs deep and can be considered unbreakable.
Wherever you turn you can spot the gondolas still roaming the canals and countless historical buildings and museums scattered among the city’s neighborhoods, called “sestieri”.
But while nobody can deny these secular constructions’ significance in terms of their cultural and artistic heritage, the influence of modern and contemporary art on the city’s cultural background is in no way inferior.
This also applies to the glassblowing sector. While Murano glass masters mainly rely on the knowledge and techniques passed on through the generations to create their masterpieces, these abilities would be nothing without these artisans’ artistic creativity.
Art is a product of its time; therefore, it naturally evolves as the years go by.
