Murano comprises a cluster of small islands, connected by bridges and is about a mile across the water from Venice and was already inhabited in Roman times. Murano was independent until 1924. It boasts a coat-of-arms which is a cock with a snake in its beak and a fox on its back, symbolizing surveillance, shrewdness and prudence.
