About This Item: 
Trace the history of 20th-century Venetian glassmaking through more than 600 full-color imagesGlassmaking has been a tradition in Venice since the Middle Ages, with most glassmakers concentrated on the island of Murano. Venetian glassmakers have continued to innovate down to the present day with the rise in the 20th century of now-legendary glassmaking companies such as Vetri Soffiati, Muranesi, Cappellin and Venini, Co. Venetian Glass picks up this story in the 1920s when Vittorio Zecchin was artistic director, inspired by the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles blazing across Europe. The narrative moves on to Carlo Scarpa and his followers, who would once again innovate Venetian glassmaking with their bold modernist style. Finally, this fascinating story also includes many of the artists that Venetian glass firms invited to develop their own works, such as Massimo Vignelli and Tapio Wirkkala.
