Tom Webb, owner of L'Antica Vetreria, led us on a very interesting tour of this museum and former glass factory. We saw how sand was heated to form glass and how the workers extracted molten glass from the pool, which was heated by wood fire. We could see how they controlled the temperature of the blown glass as it cooled. So rudimentary and also complex was the production. The museum has fine examples of all the kinds of glass bottles, jugs, vessels, etc. It was a very interesting museum tour.
