The Glasstress project offers a comprehensive analytical and critical view that looks beyond the boundaries of glass, a material that until now has been imprisoned by clichés and confined to limited scopes and uses. The project was conceived by Adriano Berengo, a Venetian cultural entrepreneur and the founder of Berengo Studio 1989 and Venice Projects, endowing Murano glass with a new and innovative image. Through this ambitious project, glass has been freed from the Venetian tradition of decoration and functionality, and has become a dynamic material used to create contemporary art. To achieve this objective, Berengo Studio regularly invites established and emerging artists to work alongside master glassmakers, encouraging them to interpret their works in glass.
