Carlo Scarpa. Venini 1932–1947 exhibition
During the dates as the 2012 Biennale of Architecture there will be plenty of events and excuses to visit the lagoon city, while the awards ceremony for the Next Landmark contest held by Floornature will offer an opportunity to discover new talents among young architects from all over the world and there will be plenty of opportunities to rediscover unrivalled masters of architecture such as Carlo Scarpa, whose work is featured in the "Le Stanze del Vetro", an exhibition promoted by Fondazione Giorgio Cini.

"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.
