Murano. A History of Glass


Illustrations: Giulia Mentasti

A long journey that explains the origins and development of Venetian glass with scientific accuracy and descriptive clarity: revolutionary technical discoveries that helped perfect this unique material, a detailed description and illustration of highly complex production processes still in use today, and the development of the forms and products.

A journey that covers the history of the work sector, scientific research, cultural exchange, enlightened commissions, and the evolution of art and style.

A history that, despite immense difficulties, still continues today with a production of the highest level.
