|Imports from China affect age-old Italian industry|
VENICE — Aldo Vidal learned how to be a glassmaker at age 11. Fifty-five years later, at age 66, he continues his profession, now accompanied by his son, Diego Vidal, 38.
Murano glass making is an industry that started 1,025 years ago. However, in recent years, the long-lasting industry in Italy has been affected by global trade. Since there is no university for glassmakers, the skill is often passed down through the family.
