    About “Laura Morelli

    1. Laura Morelli says:

      The first time I visited Venice as a wide eyed teenager, I knew I was supposed to buy Murano glass, but I had no idea why All I knew was that I was whisked to the famous glass island on an overcrowded, stinky boat I waited behind two dozen American and Japanese tourists to pay an exorbitant price for a little glass fish what a bewildering experience Still, it was the artistic traditions of the world that inspired me to study the past Living in Europe and Latin America, I realized that in many places, centuries old craft traditions are still living traditions.So began my quest to discover craftspeople passing on a special kind of knowledge to the next generation.__________________________________________________Laura Morelli holds a a Ph.D in art history from Yale University Her books include Made in Italy, Made in France, and Made in the Southwest, which lead travelers to some of the world s most authentic experiences She has written for many national publications including USA Today and the New York Daily News, and has authored a column for National Geographic Traveler online called The Genuine Article She has taught at Trinity College in Rome, Tufts University, Northeastern University, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and has spoken to public audiences across the U.S and Europe.

I thoroughly enjoyed perusing it, and it was even a free kindle download back in April when I was fortunate enough to come across it.

    3. Authentic Venetian itemsThank you for real advice on finding authentic wares. Our first trip was 5 years ago and we had no clue if what the "crap carts," as my husband calls them, carried imported junk or not. Now armed with the know how, we will come home with an authentic mask and lace this time.
