"Carlo Scarpa. Venini 1932–1947", an exhibition curated by Marino Barovier, includes more than 300 works representing a particular time in the architect’s intense career: his artistic direction of the Venini glassworks (1932–1947). The works on exhibit are prototypes, one-of-a-kind pieces, original drawings and sketches as well as historic photographs and archive documents from private collections and museums all over the world, brought together here for the very first time.
The intention is to offer a comparison of the work of Carlo Scarpa the designer and Carlo Scarpa the architect, as well as investigating and reflecting on the significance for Scarpa’s work of his time working with Murano glass.
