Premio Fondazione di Venezia

The  Premio Fondazione di Venezia was strongly desired by the Organising Committee of the Venetian Week to reward the participants commitment and to stimulate a significant and original involvement thanks to a cash prize of 1,000 euro. The Prize is supported by the Fondazione di Venezia, one of the main partners of The Venice Glass Week.

The third edition of the Fondazione di Venezia Award was awarded to the Gallerie dell’Accademia in Venice and De Santillana Fondation Stichting for th Laura de Santillana. Oltre la materia exhibition. Open to the public until 29th November 2023, was awarded by the Jury of the Venice Foundation Prize – composed of Jean Blanchaert, curator and member of the Scientific Committee of the Venice Week, Giovanna Palandri, Chancellor of the Istituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti and President of the Promoting Committee of the Venice Week, and Paola Marini, General Councillor of the Venice Foundation – with the following motivation: “Laura’s grandfather was Paolo Venini, Laura’s father, Ludovico Diaz de Santillana. Born in Venetian glass, her work has flown around the world, to Japan, the United States, the Czech Republic and elsewhere. In the exhibition at the Gallerie dell’Accademia, masterfully curated by Rainald Franz and Michele Tavola, this hieratic journey is described with aesthetic and chronological precision. The title of the exhibition, ‘Beyond Matter’ corresponds to Laura’s spirit, in perpetual search. The thirty works on display – created between Murano and the Czech Republic, using different methods of glass production – manage to communicate with the masterpieces in the museum’s collection. The best tribute for an artist who is fundamental to the art of glass”.
