Architonic recently visited Barovier&Toso, one of the oldest glass companies (its history goes as far back as 1295!) on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. The exclusive factory visit, a rare event for the typically private company, gave us a glimpse of how these beautiful objects are made by their talented artisans. Also included, a tour of their in-house museum.
