Visitors will then continue the highly suggestive itinerary of the history of Murano glass, from its origin to the 20th century. In the museum there are typical glass from the 15th and 16th century such as 'lattimo', white opaque glass like porcelain, glass used in filigree or decorated with enamels, and ice glass with a typical cracked outer. The 17th century is the century of the so-called glass à la façon de Venise, often produced by Murano glassmakers who emigrated abroad.
After a negative period for the art of glass, in the 18th century Murano Glass acquired new life thanks to Joseph Briati. In the Glass Museum there are many examples of his production, including chiocche (crystal chandeliers with multiple arms), table triumphs and mirrors. Unfortunately, the fall of the Venetian Republic (1797) had significant effects on the production of Murano Glass art, but from the second half of the 19th century, blown glass by Antonio Salviati and reproduction of Roman mosaic glass by Vincenzo Moretti offered new ideas to the glassmaking industry. After the First World War, many artists began working closely with the furnaces on the island to pursue personal projects. This trend continued even in the following decades, bringing Murano glassmaking back to the center of the international glass industry.
Thanks to the frequent collaborations between designers of international fame and Murano furnaces, Murano now has a leading role in the glass industry worldwide.
