Modern Glass Art from Murano | euromaxx

The community of Murano outside Venice is famous for its glass industry. But to get away from producing tourist souvenirs, artisan Adriano Berengo has founded a studio dedicated to promoting modern-day art glass. Studio Berengo works with well-known contemporary artists - some of whom have no previous experience with glass - and some of their works are displayed alongside the Venice Biennale.
