The Venice Carnival has always been an extraordinary event you must take part in at least once in a lifetime. But if you're looking for something original and fascinating, 'The Glass Slippers Masquerade Ball' is the event for you! Come to the magical former Church of Santa Chiara in Murano, Friday 21st February 2020 for an unforgettable evening of good food, entertainment and fun where, of course, wearing a mask is a must!
Easily reachable from Venice historic centre, Santa Chiara is one of the oldest structures of the island of Murano. Please bear in mind that the private taxi from Fondamente Nuove 'Stop A' to Murano is included in the Royal Dinner Ticket.
Built even before the decree of the Doge in 1291, which forced all the glassmakers to move their workshops to the furnaces, the building - initially called Nicolò della Torre - from 1231 onwards was inhabited by a group of Augustinian monks and then, in the middle of the fourteenth century, by another group of Benedictine nuns who were displaced shortly after for their scandalous conduct. At that point the Franciscan nuns of Santa Chiara took over, whom the Church is named after. From 1826 onwards the building came into the hands of various entrepreneurs until in 1990 a fire caused the roof to collapse, an event that made the building inhabitable.
Fortunately, in 2012, the Belluardo family decided to bring the former church back to life. Such an enterprise was far from simple considering the state of complete abandonment it had fallen into. After extensive studies requiring the consultation of architecture and history, restoration work began and four years later the building was reopened not only as a gallery, but also as a location for events and lessons on glass blowing, an art that has always belonged to the island of Murano.
The history of this building had to be told to let you appreciate the magic of this ancient place, but let's now move on to our offer. Curious to know how the long night of the Venetian Carnival will take place? Well, read on!
- Once you have arrived at the former Church of Santa Chiara, after a welcoming you can watch a show by the Masters of Glassmakers taking place from 8.30 pm to 9.00 pm: glass blowing is an art that will leave you speechless, we are sure.
