Another day in Venice
While my husband purchased tickets to Florence, I went to see the glass exhibition at the Palazzo Franchetti, located straight across the Grand Canal from our hotel.
This wonderful exhibition is by Lino Tagliapietra, a maestro from Murano who has worked with glass for over 60 years.
The rooms in the palazzo were of ball-room proportion and complete with intricate parquetry floors and mammoth Murano chandeliers.
I was so overwhelmed with the beauty around me I started to cry!
1. Palazzo Franchetti
2. A piece by Lino
3. We also purchased some pendant drops for our kitchen today! Amber with blue and aqua murrini.
Cheers from Venice,
