Importance Of the Venetian Lagoon

The Venetian Lagoon is not just another lagoon around the corner of the city that can be ignored so easily. The Venetian Lagoon and the ecosystem of this Lagoon has been proved to be the most important survivor in the system of estuarine lagoons 

The Venetian lagoon starts from River Sile in the North to the Brenta in the South and has a surface area of around 550 square kilometers (212 square miles). The Venetian Lagoon is said to be comprised of 8% of the land of Venice itself and other islands as well which can be either man made or their infrastructure may be artificially designed.

The Venetian Lagoon is said to be the Largest Wetland in the Mediterranean Basin, measuring about 420 square kilometers open to the tide of upper Adriatic. About 11% is permanently covered by open water or which may be said as canals as well. Whereas about 80% consists of mud flats, tidal shallows.

The Venetian Lagoon is connected to the Adriatic Sea by three lakes namely which are Lido, Mala Mocco and Chioggia. The lagoon has variations in its water level because of daily basis tidal flows.


The Venetian Lagoon is said to be built almost Six Thousand to seven thousand years ago approximately due to the flooding of ice age in the upper Adriatic coastal plain. In the sixth century the lagoon was basically used as a source of protection for the Romanized people who were also known as The Huns. Later on, the Lagoon provided an Environment that was well protected for the Venetian Republic to grow to flourish and to prosper under the Maritime Empire. The Venetian Lagoon is currently being used as a seaport as well as for fishing. In the Fifteenth and Sixteenth centuries starting from 1400 and extending till 1600 in the Gregorian year, The Venetian Hydraulic projects were started to prevent the Venetian Lagoon from turning into mashes.


The Venetian Lagoon wasn’t this much as populated as it is in the modern age. In ancient times, the lagoon was very much inhibited to a great extent such that it was hard to find a single living person there. Later on, during the fall of the Western Roman Empire, a lot of people that had been coming from the Venetian Mainland settled in a number that was large enough to be populated in the city and hence the City of Venice was found. In today’s age, the cities that are located inside the Lagoon but are inhabited are Lido di Venezia, Chioggia and Palestrina.

Murano Glass

Europe’s finest glass making center Murano has built itself up to be the inventors and makers of one of the finest art glasses. At this time there are hundreds of shops in Venice alone that are involved in this hundreds of centuries old tradition, although in the modern age by using various technologies even better and latest glasses can be introduced that might be better than the Murano glass but the Unlimited love people have for this Murano glass makes them bound to it and thus they stick to their history without moving on to another modern innovation. If you had already come to Venice, we are sure you have noticed how much people love to just take their boats and just dive into the deep unseen world as they just want to get lost in the thoughts of peacefulness and spirituality. Also, as Murano is famous for being the center of worldwide handcrafted glass production, you may imagine how the masters and designers in the island had combined these two main themes to create glass items of unique shapes and vibrant colors. In this process, they have given birth to the most magical products vividly inspired by water.

The Murano glass isn’t an ordinary everyday sculpture u would find at every nearby store or market. It is one of the most beautiful creations that is originated by the mixing of 2 ideas, here are some of the organizations that have also promoted the Murano glass.

1-work of artisans

The organization of work of artists has said that no modern glass could compete with the Murano glass even if they were to use the latest technology.




Murano’s reputation as a city of glassmaking was originated when the Venetian Republic, fearing fire and destruction of the city’s most wooden buildings had given a straight order to all the glass makers that existed in the time of 1291 which was 13th century to move their furnaces to Murano. Thus, Murano’s glass is also associated with Venetian glass.

In the 14th century, the Murano’s republicans had enough rights to live a peaceful life within the city but a lot of them took the risk and shifted to different nearby areas of the city thus one by one every glass maker was trying to shift to nearby villages or surrounding cities and somehow the idea of Murano’s glass was expending and so on. Time by time new techniques were being generated to make Murano’s glass for example 

Murano’s glassmakers held a monopoly on high quality glass making for centuries which involved refining many technologies including optically clear glass and enameled glass which is also known by the name of SMALTO, glass with aventurine multicolored glass and imitation gemstones. Even in this modern age the present Murano artists apply these techniques so that they can produce mind-refreshing glass sculptures Venice wanted to protect the secret of Murano’s glass to itself but a lot of artists had either shifted to different places or some leaked this information and the method was known all over Europe at the end of 16th century  .since you have enough knowledge about the Murano’s glass then
