The 2017 scholarship awarded

for research on the Seguso Archive


Patricia Lezcano Rull from Spain (b. 1989), a graduate in industrial design from the University of Florence, has been awarded the third residential scholarship dedicated to the art of Venetian glass in the 20th century.

Promoted by the Fondazione Giorgio Cini with the contribution of Pentagram Stiftung, the 2017 scholarship will enable Patricia Lezcano Rull to spend six months in residence on the Island of San Giorgio studying the Seguso Archive held by the Glass Study Centre. The aim of her research project is to reconstruct the history of the company’s production by studying the contents of the Archive but also with the aid of unpublished material and interviews obtained through direct contact with the historic Murano company.

During the six months of research, from June to December 2017, the scholarship-holder will be a guest on the campus of the Vittore Branca Center on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, an ideal place for interdisciplinary exchanges with the scholarly community of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini.
