Erede di una antica istituzione vetraria, Abate Zanetti è il punto d’incontro fra il passato ed il futuro dell’arte del vetro
Two are the souls Abate Zanetti
The first is education, which draws inspiration from its origins, and is achieved through the implementation, coordination and promotion of highly innovative training activities.
Our courses provide training in both traditional and contemporary techniques and methods of artistic glassmaking, as well as on general topics related to technology, design and marketing.
Our second soul, in keeping with the first, is that of production, a natural progression tending towards the opening up of new opportunities in a market that requires innovative solutions.
Indeed Abate Zanetti is now also a centre of excellence in the manufacturing, research and experimentation in state-of-the-art glassmaking design and artistic production, and is able to realize works of art in glass to order, starting from a project by the customer (with the ensuing elaboration of the design and prototype) or following a designer’s instructions.
Abate Zanetti is a center for research and experimentation in glass design
Abate Zanetti seeks to promote the centrality of Murano, where to this day families hand down, from generation to generation, secrets and technical skills known by its glass masters. As well as the characteristics and peculiarities of glass, spreading the passion and high artistic value in a continuous confrontation with the international reality.
A strong will to aggregate the multiple realities of the contemporary glass world, looking at the world of design, culture, art, are combined with the custody of a thousand years of tradition and technical skill of the Murano island.
