Event > Glass, enamel and polychrome marble, the island where masterpieces are born

GLASS, ENAMEL AND POLYCHROME MARBLE, THE ISLAND WHERE MASTERPIECES ARE BORN The Lagoon and its islands are among the most evocative destinations in Venice and offer a unique natural scenery, precious remains of past history and folk knowledge. An experience to be lived unhurriedly, with a soul willing to discover and be astonished by the sheer beauty of this unspoilt place.
 
The tour will lead you to discovery of Murano, the Glass-making Island famous all over the world. A “poetic” tour in the lagoon of Venice, immersed in a magical atmosphere of history, art and tradition…the Island’s oldest glassworks guard the centuries-old secret of glass blowing that have been handed down for generations through the creation of true works of art.
An unforgettable experience for those who witness this extraordinary spectacle firsthand.

Tour programme:
  • Meet tour guide and departure for the island of Murano
  • Visit to the Abate Zanetti Glass School, operating since 1862 as a center for culture, education and research in artistic glass production. A suggestive evidence of industrial archaeology of the 30's, the school is home to many outstanding activities conducted by the best Murano masters and designers of international fame. Classes in hot working and glass blowing are held at the furnace, and lampworking, enamel and gold leaf decoration, glass etching, grinding, stained glass and fusing are taught in the various workshops.
Alternatively you can visit
  • Archimede Seguso Art Glass, founded in 1946 by the famous glass master, who reinterpreted the ancient art of glassmaking through innovative techniques. In an elegant and exclusive atmosphere, you will witness the glass blowing process and admire unique pieces by this master like the famous Novecento-style animals in solid glass, the elegant vases with threads and coloured rings, the amber and green spotted glass items with optical effects of great visual impact.
 
  •  "Venetian" Aperitif
  •  Stroll down to the Basilica dei Santi Maria e Donato, one of the oldest religious buildings in the entire lagoon and a magnificent synthesis of Western-Romanesque architectural concepts and suggestions of the Byzantine world. Both the exterior and the interior of the Basilica are enhanced by elegant polychrome marble capitals, wood inserts and interesting design elements.
  •  Lunch at a typical restaurant on the island

Further information
Nexa was established in the 1990s when, after graduating from Ca' Foscari University in Anglo American Language and Literature and a period of training in London and New York, Gilda Zaffagnini decided to turn her long-time passion into a profession, organising events and promoting meetings. She chose Venice as the headquarters for her firm, and, capitalizing on important contacts in the academic world and in different international organisations, she began to organise conferences, specialized workshops and prestigious corporate events.
Nexa soon became a well-known and highly successful PCO firm, funnelling ideas and skills into new projects  in particular, putting together a group of gifted people, a young and dynamic team with a special talent for organisation, able to develop any project with precision, creativity and sophistication. This could only lead to the organisation of corporate events for large companies, foundations and institutions of international renown such as the Umberto Veronesi Foundation and the prestigious Aspen Institute Italy. All are held in magical venues and locations rich in history and stunning beauty that play a key role in ensuring the client's communication goals are met in every project. Nexa is a flexible and compact firm that grows together with its clients, diversifying its activities and ready to take up the challenges offered by new sectors. So academic and scientific conferences stand side by side with corporate events, cultural meetings and gala nights, stylish openings and meetings for major international luxury brands - such as Valentino, Louis Vuitton, Swarovski, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Alberta Ferretti - in addition to the fantastic parties organised in patrician palaces. Venice in itself is the ideal venue: the locations, activities and traditions that are the unique heritage of this city and the certainty of its international vocation highlight any presence and any participation. But it is especially on the "Made in Italy" concept that the company intends to focus, through the consolidation of a network of relationships that enhance the skills and the true strength of each player.
For this reason, Nexa has recently been devoting increasing interest to forging partnerships with top-tier businesses, professionals, consultants, PR professionals and quality suppliers with the aim of strengthening the lines of action and respond to the most diverse market trends. Nexa's success in consolidating the loyalty of its top international clients is a result of the implementation of effective strategies and proper visibility, even when faced with the most demanding requirements or specifications, because the firm guides the development of the project and the realization of the event alongside the client, with the goal of exceeding their expectations and those of their guests.
We are ready to listen, advise and propose, so that your project can turn into targeted, productive and effective action.
