After a visit to the glass maestro Stefano Mattiello, a pre-lunch investigation of the most delightful church on the island of Murano revealed a delightful pantheon of saints and sinners. Guardians from the Renaissance guard the story of St. John the Baptist, putti help souls escape the flames.
One putto has the look of a young Donald Trump.
Some saints are present in their bones, some in image.
Every surface and material is inspired, be it terrazzo floor or furnace cane glass mosaics.
