In 1291 all glassblowers from Venice were forced to move to Murano because of the fire risk. It was also said that the intention was to better protect the secrets of glass blowing in this way. On pain of death, glassblowers were forbidden to pass on their art; these people lived as prisoners on the island. Murano became famous for the glassware and also for the mirrors . The Aventurine glass was also invented on Murano . Later the island became famous for its candlesticks . In the eighteenth century, industry declined because of glass art in Bohemiacame up. But even at the beginning of the twenty-first century, glass is still the most important industry on Murano.
