Fiolèr

Fioler

From the Latin word, which means vial, bottle. It indicates, in Venice, in the ancient language, the master blower. The term appears, for the first time in 982 AD, in which, in a notarial deed concerning the transfer of the island of San Giorgio to the Benedictine monks, a master blower is cited as a witness; Domenicus Phiolarius. The term was still found in the Mariegola (rule mother, freshman, capitular, statute of the guilds of the arts and at the same time, professional register) of which we have the first news in 1271. It was, in fact, "La Mariegola of the art of phioleri and glassmakers of Muran"
