Treasure hunters from Venice
|A fascinating documentary that explores and traces the origins of a world-famous figure in myths and fairytales – and for the first time reveals its historic link with the legendary Murano glass manufacturers.
One of the reasons might be attributed to the inscrutable “Venetians” or so called “Venediger-Mandl”. In medieval times they traveled across Europe on a secret mission: They searched for rare minerals for the mighty, influential glassblowing guild “Murano”.
Atmospheric images of Venice, Italy and the Alps along with a detailed reconstruction of a medieval glass-production facility complete this enthralling historical quest.
