Over time, women from Burano have become very experienced in making the lace, becoming even more skilled than the renowned French industry. The manufacturing of needle lace unfortunately lost importance after the Serenissima's collapse; but in the XVIII century there was a new period of growth, thanks to the work of Cencia Scarpaiola.
Nowadays it's possible to visit the Lace Museum in Burano
For centuries the production of lace has been handed down from older to younger generations. The lace took many hours to produce, and in fact women worked busily all day long.
Today, tourists are still fascinated by the creative ability of lace workers.
