Murano glass smoke color “Cesendello”.


Glass in history is a protagonist in Venice especially as regards lighting. While the majestic chandeliers that we are accustomed to associate with the name of the island of Murano appear only in the seventeenth century, in the Middle Ages and early Renaissance a type of suspension lamp, of Middle Eastern origin, known as cesendello, was widespread. In this case we can retrace the history starting from an ancient sample kept in the Museum of Glass, admiring it suspended at times painted in the fifteenth-century altarpieces, and find it finally walking under the porticos of the Procuratie of Piazza San Marco.
