This exhibition is another gem that my dear friend Adriana made me aware of, while she was visiting Venice and The Biennale Arte 2019.

The exhibition highlights the incredible originality of the French glassmaker-artist with more than 200 works and numerous preparatory drawings, from his first enamelled works to glass pieces personally blown and shaped with extraordinary skill and endless inventive capacity.

The exhibition ‘Maurice Marinot. The Glass, 1911-1934′ recounts the fundamental role of Marinot in the history of modern and contemporary glass, yet to be thoroughly acknowledged by the public.

LE STANZE DEL VETRO is both a cultural project and an exhibition space on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore and it is dedicated to the study and the exhibition of modern and contemporary forms of the glass art.

Two exhibitions are staged each year: one in the spring, dedicated to the use of glass in 20th and 21st century Art and Design, and the second in the autumn, dedicated to the talented people who designed objects for the Venini glassware company in the 20th century.

Free entrance to Le Stanze del Vetro and guided tours, educational workshops and special events for families are scheduled for each exhibition.
