Tradition says that the origin of the lace made on the island of Burano goes back to a legend. A sailor, returning from one of his voyages to distant lands, brought to his beloved a piece of beautiful seaweed that he had found on the sea bed. The girl, fascinated by the stupendous beauty of the gift, wanted to reproduce with a needle and thread the extraordinary embroidery that nature has created. It is how the stich called "punto aria" was born, a characteristic stich which can be seen in all laces made at Burano.
Lace School and Museum is situated in the Gothic building in Piazza Galuppi, don't miss to visit it.
