Inside a glass factory in Murano.

The making of the "Murrine"

 It's always a pleasure when I am allowed to go inside  a glass factory in Murano . For security reasons, these places are "off limits" for everybody, but sometimes I find a way through and I spend a morning taking pictures of  very ancient art . This is the making of the glass cane that hides the colored  "Murrine" , the images or patterns made with glass. These patterns (since the  Roman empire ) will widely be used for making jewelry, glass vessels, jars, and so on.  Picture taken with my Leica SL, Summicron 50mm, 1/200s f/2,8 iso 800.
