Tomaso Buzzi and Venini at Venice’s Stanze del Vetro

In the early 1930s, the Lombard architect Tomaso Buzzi (1900-1981) – who many know as the man who designed “Scarzuola”, an “exoteric” citadel in Umbria – was Vetreria Venini’s art director.

Buzzi, thanks to his extensive knowledge and passion for classical art, created numerous items for the Murano-based company, including a range of vases inspired by Etruscan art.

From September 14, 2014 to January 11, 2015, approximately 200 of his works will be displayed in the large exhibition space “Stanze del Vetro”, on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice.

The show, titled “Tomaso Buzzi alla Venini” and curated by Marino Barovier, offers a unique opportunity to see some of the artist’s designs and drawings for the first time.
