    Massimiliano was amazing! Nice, friendly, took his time showing us different techniques. We were able to make a beautiful piece of glass very comfortably with his instructions (and for my clumsy non artistic husband that is saying a lot he loved it!). Massimiliano's pieces are beautiful. I highly recommend this. The only thing I regret is not buying a few more of his pieces.

    A great experience that I can wholeheartedly recommend. After a brief introduction to the history of glass art and a demonstration by the artist, we were allowed to make our own pendants. With his help we were able to make beautiful pendants. Massimiliano's sympathetic and nice manner contributed greatly to this great experience.

    Our experience with Massimiliano was amazing and absolutely worth the money. He let us choose the object we made during the demonstration. He was so knowledgeable about the different glass blowing techniques and made us feel like pros! He saw the imterest my boyfriend had in the technique and gave us so much information on how to do it ourselves in America! I would go back again next time I am in Venice. The e percent was wonderful and each item in the shop was breath taking. Thank you for everything!
