We witnessed the artistry and historic techniques that are used to create magnificent stained glass windows like those you see in churches around the world. This small studio actively creates new and replacement windows for churches in Italy, the USA, and elsewhere. We were lucky to get a tour from the owner, Gianni, who described the process and showed us examples of windows in process. We were particularly moved by the compassionate expression and beauty of the faces in the artworks. We feel so fortunate to have found this artisan studio.

This is the most unique experience we've had during our visit to Florence and Tuscany! Massimo and Gianni give a very interesting tour of how they create stained glass windows and fused glass items using techniques that have been used since the Middle Ages or that they have developed themselves. We learned about the hand blown colored glass, got to try cutting it, and saw how it is painted, leaded, and finished. They were working on a commission from Villanova University for some windows, one of which commemorates the 9/11 tragedy. Their shop has beautiful jewelry and glass plates for sale. To arrange a tour, email information@glassisland.com.
