Milanese by birth and Muranese by choice, Paolo Venini (1895-1959) was one of the great protagonists of 20th-century glass, who made a decisive contribution to the vitality of the art with his intense activity over the course of four decades.

His figure as a cultured, enlightened and creative entrepreneur is the focus of the fall exhibition of Le Stanze del Vetro: Paolo Venini and his glassworks, curated by Marino Barovier, which through 300 works retraces the creations of Paolo Venini and the artists who worked with him after World War II, including Tyra Lundgren, Gio Ponti, Riccardo Licata, Ken Scott, Massimo Vignelli and Tobia Scarpa.
