The square is lined with a backdrop picturing Venetian palaces, giving the whole scene a festival atmosphere.

Galanterie di Vetro at Palazzo Loredan

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Thanks to Regione Veneto and Istituto Veneto, at Palazzo Loredan in Campo Santo Stefano will be held the exposition Glass Galanteries, where you will be able to admire many artpieces of the XIXth Century from the unpublished de Boss-Smith collection.

This exhibition (cured by Rosa Barovier Mentasti) contains more than 250 pieces selected according to the different glassmaking techniques. Through these pieces you will be able to admire unusual techniques for the present: filigree, millefiori, aventurine and chalcedony inspired by Renaissance and Baroque.

Don’t loose your time, this exposition will be available just until the 2nd May 2010!!! For more information about it please visit the official website .
