LE STANZE DEL VETRO is a long term joint initiative between Fondazione Giorgio Cini and Pentagram Stiftung devoted to studying the art of glass-making in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The project marks the opening of a new permanent exhibition space designed to host a series of solo and group shows featuring inter-
national artists, both contemporary and historical, who have used glass during their careers as an original means of expression and medium for researching their own personal aesthetics. The aim is to illustrate the numerous potential uses of the medium and to put glass back at the center of attention on the international art scene.
The venue of LE STANZE DEL VETRO is the West wing of the ex-Convitto (a former boarding school) on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore. With 650 square metres of exhibition space, the exhibition centre will not only host exhibitions but also conferences, workshops and other events dedicated to glass. The restoration has been carried out by Annabelle Selldorf in collaboration with Fabrizio Cattaruzza and Francesco Millosevich.
