I'm always amazed by blown glass sculptures and I hope to visit Milwaukee Art Museum one day. During my visit in Murano I was very impressed by the many artisans blowing glass and making one of a kind sculptures and objects, which really represent the beauty of this small island. However, walking through Murano, I also saw many imitations which are reducing the value of the hardworking Murano artisans. To avoid buying a fake Murano item I searched online for some recommendations and I found, the official Murano Glass shop, which gives a certificate by the Italian law which is "Vetro Artistico Murano" Trademark of Origin. By shopping online, I'm sure to receive the original products at home in just a few days, plus I can choose between a large assortment of items.
