In 2021, the year in which the Venini glassworks celebrates its centenary, LE STANZE DEL VETRO is proposing a special project curated by Marino Barovier: Tapio Wirkkala and Toni Zuccheri at Venini, two exhibitions at Le Stanze del Vetro, which will be open to the public on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore.

Two exhibitions, showcasing 200 works in glass, will recount the Murano experiences of two great artists present at the Venini furnace both contemporaneously and at different times, particularly in the second half of the 1960s: Tapio Wirkkala and Toni Zuccheri.

Each of them, with their strong personalities, contributed to the character of the production of the glassworks. In those transformational years, the furnace was able on the one hand to present new models, without giving up the use of colour – even though at that time the use of cristallo glass was predominant in Murano – and on the other to respond to the new minimalist requirements from the world of design.
