Murano and its art told through lives, words and works of six of the most skilled Murano glass-masters. A story written through their eyes to tell the story that is never told: the story of a isle in crisis but that does not give up, the story of passionate men about glass which becomes art through their hands, the story of who works every day to carry on an ancient tradition looking at the future instead of being closed off in the past. A journey through Murano of glass in order to better understand, through the eyes of who live here on a daily basis, problems and hopes and to identify the path to re-launch Murano in the future. A strong message for new generations who will be in charge of giving to Murano and its art a brilliant future.

Presented in 2016 in Italy and in Corning Museum NY during GAS conference.

It won the Best Art Feauture Award at Eugene Film Festival 2016 (USA)!
