Tours By Nexa – Murano: the virtuous network of murano art glass

Event organised by Nexa - Event & Travel Designers

The morning tour will begin with a visit to the glass studio of Simone Cenedese, a highly original interpreter of the great tradition of art glass in the world. For 30 years, Simone Cenedese has been producing chandeliers and artistic objects and belongs to the younger generation of Murano master glassmakers, characterized by a renewed interest in combining glassmaking tradition and contemporary styles. As the master says, "everything is glass, in my works there are moments of my life, those fragments with a whole story inside." The second workshop is that of Barbini Specchi Veneziani founded in 1927, which employs three generations of expert craftsmen at the top of the mirror-making technique. Barbini produces the inimitable Venetian mirrors with magical reflections that adorn the walls of the world's most beautiful palaces, including Versailles.

The afternoon tour will take you to Gambaro&Tagliapietra, renowned for its production of art glass objects, small and large masterpieces of high craftsmanship; from traditional objects -bowls, vases, plates, animals, candlesticks, table lamps, carafes, goblets and drinking glasses, and sculptures - to true collectibles made in limited editions. Each piece is created by hand, checked and authenticated with Maestro Tagliapietra's signature. Next stop will be at Wave Murano Glass, a company established in 2017 and 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.
