The show was ok. You got an insight into the production of the glass products. I would have liked a little more explanation. Maybe a bit more about the history, where is the material fetched from, how do you become a glassblower, how many are still practicing this profession, history of the company, etc.

VERY GOOD Little short demonstration and in Italian on the other hand. Many people during these Easter holidays. We escaped quickly because the store was full of people with children everywhere......... Difficult to appreciate in these conditions. The ransom of glory. Attention, at the exit of the vaporetto, a tout yells at the tourists to enter "the store" ............ and of course it is not the one you have chosen. Just look at your certificate and you'll realize that's not where you want to go........... Don't be naive

The demonstration was interesting and beautiful to watch. Really impressive what is artfully made of glass here. Our guide could even speak a few words of German. With the booked demonstration you also get a 10% discount in the shop and you can, among other things, buy the products observed during production.
