Venetian glass is thought to have been made for over 1,500 years, and production has been concentrated on the Venetian island of Murano since the 13th century.

Today Murano is known for its art glass. Whilst the sestiere of Cannaregio and Castello became the heart of lampwork making. Still, it has a long history of innovations in glassmaking in addition to its artistic fame—and was Europe's major glassmaking centre from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance.

From 1896, with the consolidation of the Societa Veneziana Per Industria Delle Conterie, a Company that enjoyed the complete monopoly of the based making industry, sporting their business as far as Africa, America, India, Oceania, Asia and Europe.

The secrets of beauty lying in part on the colour formulas, always kept secret, colours and shades and combinations were constantly being formed to give to the Venetian beads a rare exclusiveness and chromatic scale.
