The path of each and every glassmaster starts from this step, the role of “garzonetto”. An executive and direct support to the Master, the “Servente” and the “Serventin”, the working team of Murano glass factories.
The “garzonetto” helps the masters, and by helping he learns. Because the art of glass is something you learn by “doing”, touching the tools with your hands, daily, step by step in everyday’s activities.
Abate Zanetti offers you a unique possibility: 160 hours of immersive learning experience, supporting the production activities of the laboratories of lampworking and glass fusing here at the School of Glass.
You will be there during production, demonstrations and all the other activities, managing and handling of the furnace, following the instructions of our glassmasters.
