Isola di Burano, Venice (Italy)

Burano is an island in the Venetian Lagoon northern Italy near Torcello at the northern end of the lagoon known for its lace work and brightly colored homes. The primary economy is tourism. 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. Two stories are attributed to how the city obtained its name. One is that it was initially founded by the Burriana family and another is that the first settlers of Burano came from the small island of Buranello about 8 kilometers to the south.
