  • I work in a restaurant in Venice and I have several blown glass lamps that are regularly broken by my customers, and whenever I visit with my "sick" Mauro operates a restoration work great, causing them to return almost like new. While the system often look at his works, which are of exceptional beauty and almost ashamed to waste time at a glass master like him. Funny how a few, is a shape and a true entertainer with his clients.

  • Wonderful experience speaking to such an innovative artist. He took time to explain not only the craft but also what makes his approach unique. Beautiful works of art. Truly worth the time to see a world class artisan.
  • Mauro is an absolutely incredible human! We entered his shop to ask for advice on travelling in Venice and he offered ample advice. At no point did he stop to try and sell us his artwork, he gave us plentiful help and was just an absolute pleasure to be around! His work is beautiful as is he! Definitely recommended! ✨
  • I visited here with my wife and daughter, and order 2 pizzas for taking out. Staff asked me my 20month daughter have pizza? of course 'Yes' . Then Staff told me ' small pizza.....' but I could not listen what she said. We found that extra small pizza for my daughter free in the box at the hotel. I could not say thank you but do not forget this memory and tell my daughter about this story someday!
  • I was amazed with the life-like quality of Mauro's work. He is a true artist.
  • I had the pleasure of watching this Artist in his atelier and was delighted with his work. It is so refreshing to see something other than the typical tourist demonstrations. This Artist works magic with glass; he makes it seem effortless but I am certain that hundreds of hours have gone into perfecting each life form he creates and achieving the colours that make these pieces so lifelike. His atelier is not large but it is a feast for the eyes and worth the effort of arranging a visit. . I will definitely go back again when next I am in Venice.
