Carlo Scarpa was an Italian architect, designer and academic, among the most important of the twentieth century.

For his work he received, amog others, the Olivetti award, the IN / ARCH award and the Gold Medal for Meritorious Culture and Art. He was also nominated member of the Honorary Royal Designers for Industry.

His projects were presented in Italy and abroad in important solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1966, at the Venice Biennale in 1968, at the Heinz Gallery in London, at the Institut de l’Environnement in Paris and finally in Barcelona in 1978.


The Museum of Rarity Carlo Scarpa

A simple and effective set-up gives visibility to some precious works produced by the genius of the architect-designer Carlo Scarpa: a large number of glasses (spherical vases, bowls, half-filigree cups, milky glass vases, corroded or submerged glass, opaque murrine) and “silverware”.

Metallic and non-metallic elements can also be observed in the exhibitors, such as some study models for the development of sculptures and other projects.

In the room we also find the “Orseolo” table, in lacquered plywood, made in 1970 by the company Simon of Bologna.

The museum is not currently open as some restoration works are in progress.
