Burano is an island in the Venetian Lagoon near Torcello, 7 km from Venice - a 40 minute trip by Venetian motorboats, “Vaporetti”. It’s known for its lacework and brightly colored homes. The island was probably settled by the Romans, and in the 6th century was occupied by people from Altino, who named it for one of the gates of their former city. It rose in importance only in the 16th century, when women on the island began making lace with needles, being introduced to such a trade via Venetian-ruled Cyprus. Burano is also known for its small, brightly painted houses, popular with artists. The colors follow a specific system originating from the golden age of its development; if someone wishes to paint their home, one must send a request to the government, who will respond by making notice of certain colors permitted for that lot.
