The staff in the shop are rude and unfriendly. The 'art' is amateurish and overpriced. Avoid at all costs. Do not go here.

Through our good fortune, we stumbled upon this tiny shop located a little off the usual tourist track. I was in awe of the detailed and colourful tile work of a mirror frame, laboriously made by Ketty. Later that evening, my partner surprised and delighted me with the news that he would purchase it for me for Christmas. It has just arrived in our home in the Netherlands, carefully shipped via fed ex.

When you are in Venice, forget the tourist junk, and buy the work of a skilled local artisan. Ketty's work is superb!

We recently returned from Venice where we commissioned Ketty to do a mosaic of St. Mark's for us. It arrived today and we absolutely love it! She did a fabulous job using many different textures and beautiful colors. It's even more gorgeous than we could have dreamed. Thank you so much for giving us a very special memory of our trip to Venice!

Bought my wonderful piece of Murano rare black glass with a hand painted "Kiss" from the Gallery on Via Garibaldi run by Sergio Parma in 2011. We recently went back and I found the artist (Ketty Parma, Sergio's daughter) In one of the lanes behind St. Mark's Square and took photos of her to place with my work of art. Her gallery is on Salizada A. Antonin, number 3541 and well worth a visit if you want to see genuine good art on venetian glass. Nothing to dislike

Ketty Parma is a true artisan. Her little shop has gorgeous glass and custom made mirrors which are spectacular. She is so talented. I purchased a beautiful perfume bottle for my collection.
Ketty is gracious and kind. Be sure to visit her shops.
