Venini: Light 1921-1985 Exhibition at Le Stanza del Vetro, Venice

EXTENDED – The Exhibition has been extended to the 9th of July 2023, worth a visit!

The autumn exhibition “Venini: Light 1921 – 1985”, curated by Marino Barovier, intends to explore the glassworks’ activity in the field of lighting, from a small to a large scale, tracing an excursus through its most significant projects.

One of the most important areas of Murano glass production has always been lighting, both for domestic use and for large public and private environments, including ministerial buildings, post offices, theatres and hotels.

In particular, the Venini glassworks distinguished itself with significant results in this sector too, particularly thanks to its capacity for constant renewal and its characteristic openness towards the world of design. These are both aspects that have made it a reference point for the most important architects on the national and international scene.

The exhibition will feature a hand-picked selection of objects conceived by the many designers who collaborated with the furnace or by the company’s own technical office, illustrating how the theme of light was tackled in the various decades, in a chronological arc that goes from 1921 to 1985.
