The Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark will be part of the night of the Redentore’s celebration: the Venetians’ most beloved feast together with the oldest art of the city, Murano glass.
This year the lights created by fireworks will be reflected in the glass masterpieces, used during the Gala Dinner on Saturday 14th at Palazzo Ducale, seat of the Serenissima’s Doges.
Consortium Promovetro will expose some marvelous centerpieces, to show the elegance and style of the one-thousand years old Murano glass tradition.
30 masterpieces, chosen among vases and sculptures, in both classic and modern styles, abstract shapes and animals.
Also some lightened sculptures, will contribute to make the Doges’ Palce even more beautiful.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Venezia Marketing Eventi for one of the most important feast in Venice, which join together the sacred and the profane, and is today, after so many centuries, an important tradition which also appeal many visitors – says Mr. Luciano Gambaro, President of Consorzio Promovetro Murano. At Palazzo Ducale, the cradle of Venice, we are proud to bring our history, art and culture, fundamental elements of the history of Venice.
All glass masterpieces will be marked with the Vetro Artistico® Murano label, the only legally recognized certification, which tells the murano origin of the piece, and is managed by the Consorzio Promovetro. Our main goal is to safeguard our one thousand years old tradition against those who want to ruin it with fake products and counterfeiting.
