When you think of the Venetian Island of Murano, glass immediately springs to mind. The history of glass has been interwoven with this island since 1290, when the Most Serene Republic of Venice ordered the transfer of all glass production to Murano to ensure that the whole of Venice would not go up in flames if a furnace were to catch fire. Since then, for over 720 years Murano has been linked to this curious, almost paradoxical substance: it is both solid and liquid. This book tell us the history of this special wonderfull glass.
