A special project unites Seguso Vetri d’Arte with the 74th Venice International Film Festival: 300 blown glass globes create the extraordinary scenery that illuminates the façade of the Palazzo del Cinema of Lido in Venice, an installation conceived and designed by the Biennale di Venezia to host the stars on the red carpet for this most prestigious film festival, “a sign of lightness and authentic Venetian spirit.”
For the first time alongside the prestigious Biennale di Venezia, Seguso Vetri d’Arte, which during the 1930’s – the height of splendor in the Lido of Venice – illuminated the Grand Viale with precious globes in glass that can still be admired today, shines on the “dolce vita” that accompanies the 74th Venice International Film Festival.
“We are proud to collaborate with Biennale Cinema 2017 for this project,” said Gianluca and Pierpaolo Seguso, respectively, the President-CEO and Artistic Director of Seguso Vetri d’Arte, “because it emphasizes secular wisdom and the value of Murano art to the international audience by offering a contemporary interpretation in all its uniqueness and preciousness. It is an extraordinary opportunity to talk about the legendary cinema together with Murano glass, a great symbol of Venice, because they share the ability to astonish and transmit beauty and emotion.”
The collaboration with the Biennale di Venezia is another important acknowledgment for Seguso Vetri d’Arte, which unites its name to the most significant Murano glass projects in the world and is an ambassador of Italian artistic and manufacturing excellence.
