Tours By Nexa – Murano: the great master glassmakers - combining passion and experimentation
Event organised by Nexa - Event & Travel Designers
The afternoon tour explores two worlds ostensibly diametrically opposed: a company founded in 2017 and one of Murano's oldest furnaces. These realities share a love of glassmaking and innovation: the first is Wave Murano Glass headed by Roberto Beltrami, Murano's youngest master glassmaker, who, after graduating in physics in Boston, fell in love with glass and introduced an innovative approach to its processing. At the other end of the spectrum is Barbini Specchi Veneziani, founded in 1927, where, in Murano, three generations of expert craftsmen excelling in mirror-making technique still personally follow every step of the process, from design, cutting, bevelling, and engraving,to silvering and assembling. Did you know that Barbini mirrors can also be found at the Palace of Versailles?
