The TVGW Tours by Nexa for Friday, September11th in Murano will introduce you to young glassmasters, families who have been active in glass-making for generations and world famous furnaces. All through the voice of the protagonists!
The first tour starts at 10 am and will explore three fantastic stories: the ones behind Luciano Gambaro and Matteo Tagliapietra, the mastermind and operative arm of the eponymous furnace, Alessandro Moretti of Costantini Glassbeads who, as a child, used to play among the boxes of his grandfather's multicoloured glass beads, and iconic Salviati, a furnace that has been producing artistic glassware for 150 years.
At 3 p.m. the second tour will focus on Roberto Beltrami who, after achieving a degree in physics in Boston, fell madly in love with this art and founded Wave Murano Glass, and Matteo Seguso who, having approached the technique of artistic engraving on glass to follow in his father's footsteps, is today one of the most talented engravers in Murano.
