The protagonist of Murano glass in the twentieth-century, Paolo Venini (1895-1959), with his passionate activity spanning almost forty years, made a decisive contribution to the vitality of the art of glass, achieving extraordinary results soon recognized internationally.
For the greater part of the three hundred models in this volume, Paolo Venini had recourse to the traditional Murano techniques, of which he gave a refined and innovative interpretation. The volume, based mainly on the unpublished materials coming from the Venini archives, also documents the contribution of the artists who worked with him intermittently between the 1930s and the 1950s, including Tyra Lundgren, Gio Ponti, Fornasetti, Ken Scott or Massimo Vignelli.
