MURANO, BACK TO THE FUTURE

VENEZIA ARTE CULTURA & TURISMO / Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia

Description

We will retrace the history of glass, going through the most precious artifacts on display at the Glass Museum to then analyze the realities of present time. Special emphasis will be placed on the art of making glass beads.

 

In the past, the production of beads was carried out in Venice rather than in Murano, and it was a women’s occupation rather than men’s. It relied on a widespread network of beads makers, who worked at home using the glass canes produced in the Murano kilns. The revival of Murano glass at the end of the 19th c. was also boosted by an extraordinary production of beads, highly valued items traded in and out of the Mediterranean from time immemorial. Today the art of beads making still engages and challenges a good number of creative and innovative artisans and artists.
