STORIE DI FACTORIES. STORIES OF FAMILIES
One hundred years of NasonMoretti. The Story of a Murano Glass Family
From 19 May 2023 to 6 January 2024 *Exhibition extended to 28 April, 2024
Murano, Glass Museum
This 2023 exhibition is an occasion for one of Murano’s most flourishing and original companies, NasonMoretti, to celebrate one hundred years of activity.
An opportunity to look back, open the archives, and share with visitors to the Glass Museum a noteworthy history composed of more than ten thousand models.
Founded in 1923, the Nason & Moretti glassworks at once chose a specific direction – the art of tableware – but with a thoroughly modern approach that would also remain faithful to traditional technique of the past, reinterpreting it to suit contemporary formulas.
Equipped with a rich palette and a constant openness to innovation, Nason & Moretti has been a point of reference in design since the 1950s, when in 1955 its Lidia bowls won the prized Compasso d’oro, and it began its regular presence at the Venice Biennale.
The exhibition – and a subsequent celebratory book – will contain an overview of the most successful pieces created by the firm, as well as those resulting from its partnerships with some of the most important names in design and architecture. A no less essential section will be dedicated to current projects, demonstrating the thriving vitality of this historic Murano family business.
