Glass Museum (Murano)

You can't visit Venice without seeing the world-famous Murano glass. These little islands of Venice also host a museum dedicated to this centuries-old art, with an archeological collection showing pieces from the Roman Empire.

This building was originally the residence of the bishops of Torcello. In 1659, it became the residence of Bishop Marco Giustiniani who later donated the building to the Torcello diocese. In those years the palace underwent several architectural modifications according to the design of Antonio Gasperi.

When the diocese was abolished, it became property of the Municipality of Murano (1840). Later in 1923, the museum became part of the Venice Civic Museums. The large central room on the Grand Canal shines for its beautiful fresco by Francesco Zugno, representing the allegoric Triumph of San Lorenzo Giustiniani.
