Venice’s culinary traditions originally rise from the fact that they are situated on the Adriatic Sea.
They are obviously largely influenced by their surroundings since you find a lot of seafood in their cuisine and typical dishes.
The most famous landmark of Murano is the the Basilica dei St Maria e Donato, which originally was built in the 7th century
It was, however, reconstructed in the 12th century after St Donatus’ remains were moved to the church along with bones said to be from a dragon he slayed, which now hang inside the church on the altar.
The actual method of glassmaking is extremely complex and detailed; not exactly how it is seen in the demonstrations in Murano! The glass is made of silica which melts into a liquid form under higher temperatures and as it cools, it goes soft enough in order to be shaped by the skilled artist.
