The islands on which stands Murano are placed along the Marani canal and are divided by channels and canals and connected by bridges; their territory is totally urbanized, excluding the Sacca San Mattia, still in the process of remediation. Two islands are of artificial origin: Sacca Serenella and Sacca San Mattia.
