IMPORTANT CARLO SCARPA FOR VENINI VENETIAN TURQUOISE GREEN MURANO GLASS BOWL WITH A CONTROLLED BUBBLE EFFECT KNOWN AS BULLICANTE. GOLD LEAF INCLUSIONS ENCASED IN THE GLASS. MADE ON THE ISLAND OF MURANO, NEAR VENICE ITALY. DIMENSIONS: 5W x 5D x 3H.One of the most enigmatic architects of the 20th century, Carlo Scarpa (June 2, 1906 November 28, 1978) is best known for his instinctive approach to materials, combining time-honored crafts with modern manufacturing processes. In a 1996 documentary directed by Murray Grigor, Egle Trincanato, the President of the Fondazione Querini Stampalia for whom Scarpa renovated a Venetian palace in 1963, described how above all, he was exceptionally skillful in knowing how to combine a base material with a precious one. Born in Venice, Scarpa spent most of his early childhood in Vicenza, before his family moved back to Venice after the death of his mother in 1919. Scarpa studied architecture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, and from 1932 until 1947 he was director of the Venini Glassworks. It was here that he first displayed his appreciation for craft, often working with the Venini glassblowers late into the night to perfect new designs.
It was not until after World War II that Scarpa began to be recognized internationally for his architecture. Perhaps most famously, Scarpa's renovation for the Museo Castelvecchio completed in 1964 carefully balanced new and old, revealing the history of the original building where appropriate. A revelation at the time, this approach has now become a common approach to renovation, perhaps most notably exhibited by David Chipperfield's Neues Museum.
