Yesterday the olympic champion Carolina Kostner performed the so called “Volo dell’Acquila” (eagle’s flight), jumping from the St. Mark bell tower toward an applauding crowd, during what is considered as one of the most important event of Venice’s Carnival.
She was dressed up as the “sleeping nature” and she received a typical venetian mask, the “bauta” from president of Consorzio Promovetro Murano, Luciano Gambaro.
The mask has been much appreciated by the athlete who won the bronze medal during Soci Winter Olympic Games. It was made of colourful glass rods, put together with the “fusing” technique, and carrying the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark, the only legally recognised one which guarantees the origin of the Murano glass product.
“Promovetro’s companies are always on the frontline to all international events which take place in Venice”, says Gambaro. “Our aim is to promote our art and to explain to consumers how to recognise original artistic Murano Glass from those who only bear Murano’s name”.
“We are very proud to give our present to Carolina who, just like our millennial art, promotes Italy all around the world”.
