Carlo Scarpa, Venini 1932–1947, Le Stanze del Vetro, Venice

In 1932 Carlo Scarpa began working with the Venini glassworks. He was to design some remarkable glass items for the company until 1947. His work involved continuous research into the materials, colours and techniques, which he adopted in a personal way to reinterpret old traditions and, together with the master glassblowers, to invent new working procedures.
