Rediscovering Museum: the revival of the second half of the 19th century.
Until June 15th you can admire more than 70 works of this period of extraordinary revival of Murano glass production.
This success was the result of three factors:
the marketing strategy of Antonio Salviati, focused on market more
than on productio and on a strong advertising campain in Italy and
abroad. His success still remains unequalled today;
- on 1861 the opening of the Glass Museum thanks to abbot Vincenzo Zanetti and to the pharmacist and major Antonio Colleoni;
- the opening of the the “scuola festiva di disegno per gli artieri
annessa al museo”, a school created to teach the technique of drawing.
Murano thus returned to being the centre of beauty, elegance and the
Murano Glass Museum
