Napoleone Martinuzzi: More than 5,000 persons visit exhibition at Le Stanze del Vetro in the first week
Piglet in uncoloured bubble glass with red glass paste finishing, Napoleone Martinuzzi for V.S.M. Venini & C., 1929 ca.
VENICE.- The exhibition Napoleone Martinuzzi. Venini 1925 – 1931, curated by Marino Barovier, currently on show at Le Stanze del Vetro, on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice, has already been visited by 5,000 visitors since it opened to the public on Sunday September 8th.

Le Stanze del Vetro is a joint initiative of Fondazione Giorgio Cini and Pentagram Stiftung.

The exhibition reconstructs Martinuzzi's whole production chronologically: from transparent elegant blown glass to works with an unprecedented opaque texture, from the experiments with pulegoso glass (a semi-opaque or translucent glass with a rough surface due to tiny bubbles formed by using special ingredients) to pieces with deep, dense colors.

The exhibition also explores the relationship between Martinuzzi and the poet Gabriele d'Annunzio who commissioned the Murano artist to make not only sculptures but also works in glass. To illustrate their special bond and the artistic vision shared by these two personalities, the exhibition includes a reconstruction of one of the rooms in the Vittoriale by stage designer Pierluigi Pizzi, with some of the most significant works that Martinuzzi designed for the poet.

In addition, the exhibition includes a selection of period photographs and original drawings and a documentary titled Napoleone Martinuzzi. Mio Comandante directed by Gian Luigi Calderone, which recounts the life of the Murano artist and the various stages of his involvement with major patrons.

The exhibition Napoleone Martinuzzi. Venini 1925 – 1931 is open every day, except on Wednesdays, from 10 am to 7 pm. Admission free.
