The collaboration of the two authors has contributed to making Murano an extraordinary place that is well worth visiting, investigating, and photographing.
The glass making world of Murano is currently experiencing an ongoing review between the old and the new, between the loyalty of traditional values and an eagerness to innovate.
The interest of this debate is that it is among the classic glassmakers, who work in an atmosphere similar to that of a medieval workshop, and contemporary artists who live entirely in modern-day society.
THE AUTHOR: ROSA BAROVIER MENTASTI
Descending from one of Venice’s ancient glass making families, Rosa Barovier Mentasti was awarded a degree in Ancient Literature by the University of Padua in 1973 with a thesis on antique glass. Since then, she has been dedicated to studying the history of both ancient and modern Venetian glass. In addition to many articles and publications, she has curated several international exhibitions of ancient and contemporary glass. She works for the Art Glass Museum in Murano Island and for the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti in Venice.
