Inauguration: Mind Blowers

Orovetro Murano


A fascinating journey to the origins of creativity, an original account through the soul of the glass, moulded by its meeting with fire and its transformative force. A special event will bring to life the atelier of Orovetro Murano, inside one of the historic furnace along Fondamenta dei Vetrai.


An exceptional live performance by glass artists Mauro Bonaventura and Simone Crestani – in collaboration with the Masters Franco and Fabio Ongaro from Vetreria TRE - will represent the highlight of the event, at the same time an exclusive party with dinner and spectacular show. The art will lead the attendees into an evening of good food, live music and the splendour of a unique location. In this occasion will be unveiled for the first time two chandeliers create in collaboration with the artists.


During the entire week, the Venice Glass Week audience will also have the possibility to visit the furnace and to admire the two artists' works with a special displayment created on purpose.


The special event in the Orovetro Murano furnace will find its ideal completion in the exhibition of the artists' works inside the historic Pauly & C store, under the procuratie of Piazza San Marco.
