威尼斯玻璃歷史,最遠可追溯至八世紀,在為威尼斯帶來驚人的財富後,1291年威尼斯政府下令,以預防威尼斯本島發生火災為名,要求全數窯爐遷至Murano島,另一方面,此舉也是為了更加嚴密控管,擁有技術的玻璃吹製者的一舉一動。

The history of Venetian glass can be traced back to the 8th century. The successful industry brought wealth and success to Venice and in 1291 the Venetian government imposed a decree forcing all glassmakers to relocate to Murano for a couple of reasons: first, they feared a fire would start from the furnaces in the wooden structures of the crowded city and secondly, they wanted to keep their glassmaking formulas secret.

中世紀歐洲各國眼見玻璃所帶來的美麗與財富,不惜重金、利誘玻璃吹製者離島,也使得威尼斯更加嚴密控制玻璃吹製者,罰款、監禁,嚴重者甚至可判處死刑;即使成功出逃,也可能在逃亡路上、在國境邊界被狙殺。間接造成Murano島上長年來保守封閉、排外的風氣。但政府的禮遇措施,包括能配劍、能與貴族通婚等獎勵政策下,十四世紀一度造就揚名世界的璀燦輝煌威尼斯玻璃工藝

As other European countries witnessed the beauty of Venetian glass and the wealth it produced, glassblowers were bribed to leave the island. To prevent defection, officials increased the punishment to include fines, imprisonment and even death. By the 14th century, those who stayed and were loyal to the legacy of Venetian glass were treated treated like royalty and their daughters were permitted to marry into Venice’s most affluent families.

1934年,當Lino Tagliapietra誕生在這座小島時,威尼斯玻璃至少已有千年以上的歷史……

By the time Lino Tagliapietra was born in 1934, Venetian glass had already enjoyed a fruitful 1,000 year history……
