The exhibition, organised by the Musei Civici d'Arte Antica in collaboration with the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia - in particular with the Museo del Vetro di Murano - and curated by Mark Gregory D'Apuzzo, Massimo Medica and Mauro Stocco, aims to celebrate the important donation of the precious Cappagli Serretti collection. The exhibition is an opportunity to admire the entire collection, consisting of 117 pieces of glass, which will increase the already considerable museum heritage of glass from the Musei Civici d'Arte Antica. The Civic Museum of Medieval Art and the Davia Bargellini Museum house masterpieces of the art of glassmaking, which, thanks to the donation, see their rich collections implemented and integrated. The collection is in fact of great value not only for the considerable number of objects and their undoubted artistic quality, but also and above all for the fact that it provides a broad and exhaustive overview of European glassmaking from the seventeenth to the early twentieth century. The glass objects illustrate different types (riser, pourer, bottle, chalice, glass, flask) and uses (wine glass, liqueur glass, presentation glass, reliquaries, glass for everyday use or for decorative purposes), and also allow us to look far beyond the Italian horizons to get to know, for example, the English and Spanish glassworks of the 18th century or the colourful Bohemian production of the 19th century.
