DETAILSThe name “Millefiori” (thin glass polychrome canes) comes from the various geometrical and floral patterns present in the center of the same. The “Millefiore“, which are often identified with the “Murrina” itself, are small objects enchantingly manufactured that still represent a mystery for many people due to their fine decorations. For this reason “Gli Ori di Venezia” thought of the idea of offering, to those who desire to approach these small jewels for the first time, a brief story and some fundamental moments of the long and complex manufacturing of the “Murrine“. The use of the glass rods goes back to the Phoenician and Alexandrian Age. It can be found in the vases and bowls from the Antique Roman Period. In the XVI Century this technique came back to rise to become art-work thanks to the Murano glass Masters in the beginning of the XIX Century. Decorate policarbonate for this elegant bookmark.
