The LE STANZE DEL VETRO catalogues are available from our website. A rich collection of volumes that explores the stunning glass production from the 20th century to the present-day.

To find out more about the activities of the celebrated Venini glassworks, we suggest starting with the Paolo Venini and His Furnace catalogue (only available in English): drawing on many previously unexhibited works, the catalogue traces the activities of the founder of Venini and the collaborations he established with numerous different artists over the years: Gio Ponti, Piero Fornasetti, Ken Scott and Tobia Scarpa to name just a few. The catalogue Vittorio Zecchin. Transparent Glass for Cappellin and Venini is another must, analysing Zecchin’s work as artistic director of the glassworks from 1921 to 1926, during which he designed some extraordinary pieces of monochrome blown glass for the company. And moving metaphorically beyond the boundaries of Venice, Thomas Stearns at Venini describes the path followed by this innovative American artist who revolutionized Murano glass production during the 1960s.

The catalogue The M.V.M. Cappellin Glassworks and the Young Carlo Scarpa 1925 – 1931 is dedicated to the history of the Cappellin glassworks with particular focus on the contribution of the young architect and designer Carlo Scarpa.

Ettore Sottsass: the Glass (only available in Italian), published on the occasion of the exhibition celebrating the centenary of Sottsass’s birth, documents for the first time the glass production of this remarkable designer.

If, on the other hand, your curiosity is piqued by European glass production in the early 20th century, we recommend The Glass of the Architects. Vienna 1900 – 1937, which tells the story of the key figures in Viennese Modernism such as Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser and Adolf Loos, who first paved the way to new developments in Viennese glass production; and Maurice Marinot. The Glass, 1911 – 1934, documents the production of this French artist from the start of his career to his experiments with the most original techniques to produce works destined to become iconic.
