Il mondo in una perla (The world in a bead)

From 08/12/2017 To 15/04/2018

Il mondo in una perla

Small but highly valuable objects, capable of dictating the rules of the market or fashion: glass beads, artifacts of rare beauty that glitter and reveal the mastery in their craftsmanship. Glass beads produced in Venice for the Italian or European market, pearls of Africa, destined for the foreign markets of Africa, Asia and India, made according to the taste and traditions of exotic countries. At the Murano Glass Museum, visitors can admire the Venetian glass beads that accompanied glass-making history in the lagoon, still a thriving and important segment today. Venice began production in the 14th century and still continues to this day, with improved techniques and manufacturing, recreating a kaleidoscopic magical world. On exhibit until April 15, this rich repertoire ranges from historical to contemporary collections, the fruits of a history that is not lost and a reality that aims at preserving mastery and technical skill, injecting new stimuli into it.
