Tours by Nexa - Venice: creativity and experimentation at the service of art glass

Event organised by Nexa - Event & Travel Designers

The morning tour will take you through neighbourhoods teeming with workshops and precious art studios, historic buildings and hidden treasures that our guide will introduce you to, including a special glass bead studio: Le Burle di Monica. For almost twenty years a pole of attraction for connoisseurs and artists alike, Monica's workshop will give you the opportunity to witness up close a special kind of craftsmanship: our artisan works with seed beads, combining them according to shape and colour, adding inserts of crystal and semi-precious stones to create exquisite embroidery. Her bracelets, chokers and earrings are one-of-a-kind, authentic tiny wearable artworks, timeless objects that convey all the emotion of a centuries-old history.

The afternoon tour focuses on Massimo Micheluzzi and his glass creations that pay homage to the centuries-old Murano traditions, and yet reveal a modern and original aesthetic. His tireless experimentation in materials and forms is firmly rooted in the life and history of the city and inspired by the atmosphere, light and architecture of Venice. Present in the collections of the world's most important museums, his creations can be viewed in the artist's studio, a place expressing all the passion of an eclectic approach that reflects the infinite creative possibilities of glass. His artworks include fluid and organic shapes, iridescent transparencies and opaque surfaces, as well as elaborate colour combinations, mosaic patterns and sculptural forms. A unique opportunity to explore the world of art glass!
