Soffiato (blown)

Soffiato (blown)

The technique of the glass blowing dates back to the 2nd century  b. C.
Previously,  hole items were created by using a technique called "del vetro friabile" (of the brittle glass) which consisted in wrappping and shaping a string of incandescent glass around a soil mould.
The tehcnique of blowing enters the need to attach a mainstay to the item and so introducing the technique of the "mano volante" (flying hand). This technique leads the masters to a deeper research  of the moulds and of their use.
