VITRARIA is a platform to get in touch with the world of glass as a source of art.
VITRARIA GLASS +A MUSEUM explores the different branches in which glass presents itself: from its first traditional use via its artistic perception to the latest developments in the field of technology. Our vision is to represent glass in the entity of its nature.
GLASS +A approaches the world of glass from a holistic perspective.
The exhibition builds bridges between past and present, exploring key characteristics that relate to the concept of glass: FRAGILITY, TRANSPARENCY, LIQUIDITY and TRANSFORMABILITY.
Glass is taken as a metaphor to build a narrative within the museum, connecting different artists and periods.
We invite you to find your own path of inspiration and to experience glass, even in unexpected forms.
The museum is located close to the Academia and the Grand Canal. The adress is:
Palazzo Nani Mocenigo
