We went there at 13 am in order to avoid the crowd, and we were lucky…we entered immediately.

The first thing you see when you entered is this, and what can we say about it? It is amazing!!!

In this trip called Behind Venice, we will discover the Venetian craftsmanship. The first stop is at the historic glass pearl factory Costantini Glass Beads.
Take the water bus (Vaporetto) and stop at Murano Venier, get off and, first left and then right, you are in Calle del Cimitero, in front of the door of the centennial factory, which since 2006 is owned by Alessandro Moretti, the grandson of Ubaldo Costantini (his great-grandfather) and Cleto Costantini (his grandfather).

For those who, like me, were born and grew up among its streets, this phrase undertake a completely different meaning. Continue reading “MY VENICE BY ELEONORA”
