Murano - Museo del Vetro -The Barry Friedman Collection – Venetian Heritage - Party

Murano - Museo del Vetro
The Barry Friedman Collection and Venetian Heritage
The Barry Friedman Collection, curated by Chiara Squarcina with the scientific direction of Gabriella Belli, is on show until August 19 at the Museo del Vetro in Murano. Coming from the passion of a great art enthusiast, namely the renowned New York collector Barry Friedman, this extraordinary collection of twentieth-century Murano glass works was donated in 2017 to Venetian Heritage, to become a permanent part of the Murano Glass Museum, the perfect location for its maximum appreciation.

The Barry Friedman Collection and Venetian Heritage

The 177 works that comprise the collection include glass designed by Bianconi, Buzzi, Nason, Poli, Scarpa and Zecchin, made in the most important and historic Murano’s factories, among them Seguso, Barovier and Toso, Cenedese, Salviati and Venini. This donation greatly expands the Murano Museum’s twentieth-century collection, which in addition to presenting its historical collections, aims to present and appraise current directions taken by local glassworks. In this sense, the twentieth century appears to be the fundamental key to understanding contemporary times. The superb quality of the artefacts that constitute the extraordinary Friedman collection provides the opportunity to present to the public particular themes of great interest.
