Millefiori technique is one of the most ancient decorative glass-making techniques in the world. Articles created in this technique were in use in many ancient civilizations, including ancient Egypt, Phoenicia, Greece, and Rome. Millefiori is a complex completely manual technique involving creation of glass canes with colorful patterns at the cross-section and then cutting up those canes to obtain tiny mosaic pieces, which can be arranged into patterns and fused together to create pendants or decorate the surfaces of various glass articles. Building on the heritage of ancient Rome, Murano masters were the only ones with the knowledge of Millefiori technique in the middle ages, but this knowledge was lost by the end of the seventeenth century. The technique was rediscovered on Murano in the nineteenth century and experienced renaissance in popular appreciation, which continues to this day.
