Description


Documenting the entire output of one of the most important glass companies in Italy from 1925 to 1931

From transparent glass to milky glass, from delicate simple shapes to Phoenician designs, in over 400 pages and 900 images, The M.V.M. Cappellin Glassworks and the Young Carlo Scarpa tells an essential chapter in the history of Murano glassmaking. In 1925, Giacomo Cappellin (1887-1968) broke with V.S.M. Cappellin Venini & Co. to become one of the most important glass companies in Italy, in no small part thanks to its collaboration with the young architect Carlo Scarpa (1906-78). The entire output of M.V.M. Cappellin from 1925 to1931, when the glassworks was forced to close, is documented in this gorgeous volume. The M.V.M. Cappellin Glassworks and the Young Carlo Scarpa offers a wealth of information for scholars, collectors and art lovers, including, in addition to its images, information on the production and exhibition of Cappellin Glassworks in the United States and France.
