For 150 years, Moretti-Caselli family members have been making and restoring stained glass works in some of Italy's major churches, including Saint Francis in Assisi and the Duomo of Orvieto. Their craft is exquisite because the glass serves as canvas that is then minutely and meticulously painted. The family's glass workshop is inside a 14h-century palazzo located in the historic...

This museum/lab/factory is amazing. Giorgio did a great job of presenting this almost lost art of painting glass with metal oxides and infusing with heat to "paint" a stained glass masterpiece. The colors are jewel like and the the lead cams are placed to be a part of the shadowing to the point you do not see them at all.... More

I would give this tour 10 stars if I could. The visit was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. I realized the night before we planned to go that we needed to make a reservation--so I emailed the studio and was so glad to get a quick response with a scheduled time for the next afternoon. We...

We enjoyed an extremely interesting tour of one of Perugia's gems. The family has been in business for well over a century, and their story along with the venue are very interesting. Another example of the deep talent, artistry and ability of Umbria. Highly recommended!

The Caselli family of artists has been making enamelled glass windows here since 1860. The studio is located in an old residence that dates back to the 15th century. The photos on their website look amazing and I felt we just had to visit and see for ourselves. It's quite hard to find but I'm glad we did, because we... More

Maddalena and her mother were lovely hostesses for my academic colleagues and I visiting from the States! The artistry and care exhibited by the work produced in this studio are inspiring.

The one hour tours are only in the morning (the last one is at 12); on Tuesdays I believe you can just show up without a booking. If you want to book ahead, ask for an English language tour. The tour will take you through the old/current workshops of this family of stained glass makers. I believe they have done... More
