Vetri artistici del primo Ottocento. Museo del Vetro di Murano
The color photos of all the cataloged pieces, the photos of the details of the different glass fabrics (the watermarks, the chalcedones, the inlays, the applications), the accurate filing, the timely comparison with the manuscript inventories preserved in the museum archive and with the amount of information found in the minutes of local, national and international exhibitions in which Murano masters and entrepreneurs participated, all these elements make this catalog an indispensable aid for scholars, museum curators, collectors, antique dealers, and a fascinating read for people interested in getting closer and learning about the history of Venetian glass and the history of Murano.
Attilia Dorigato was director of the Murano Museum from 1978 to 2005. She has published numerous studies, articles and catalogs, curated numerous important exhibitions relating to Murano glass, in Italy and abroad.
Aldo Bova and Puccio Migliaccio have curated together with Rossella Junck some of the most significant exhibitions relating to Murano glass of the 19th century in the last few years, publishing in the relative catalogs some texts that are now considered mandatory references for those who deal with the history of Murano glass period.
