This volume reconstructs the fifteen years of the remarkable artistic collaboration between Carlo Scarpa and the Venini glass-making company, from 1932 to 1947.

This was made possible by the intense research carried out especially at the glass-making company's historical archive, which had at last been rediscovered. The whole production designed by the Venetian architect is illustrated in about six hundred works divided into the different types of glass- around refined creations. The types of glass are classified as a mezza filigrana, sommersi, lattimi, corrosi, granulari, murrine, incisi, battuti, pennellate, a fili, and are the product of the untiring experiments the artist performed on material and color.

Precious and unprecedented documentary material, which includes original drawings and period photographs, complete tho catalogue raisoné, providing an accurate account of the most important phases in the golden age of 20th-century Venetian glass-making. The catalogue was published for the first exhibition of LE STANZE DEL VETRO
