One hundred years of NasonMoretti: the story of a Murano glass family

NasonMoretti tells its story through a journey of colours, the sparkling of glass and the historical pieces that have determined its success, during its resident exhibition at the Museo del Vetro in Murano.

An immersive journey among the products, the result of extensive research of the company's archive which led to the discover of almost 10,000 pieces made over the course of a century of history.

The exhibition is a triumph of colours from the moment you step through the door. Two white wave-shaped displays welcome visitors into a bright and spacious environment, where 400 models are on display, including prototypes and series produced from the 1920s to the present day.

The sinuous shape of the display counters guides the viewer into the first room, where the journey through a timeline of the of the Nason family's business begins. On the shelves are iconic tableware products from the 1930s to the 1970s, plates and technical paper drawings, restored by expert hands.

As the journey continues, the viewer encounters specific displays dedicated to the Compasso d'Oro, won by NasonMoretti back in 1955, with the Lidia collection. The award enabled the company to reach international fame, and the iconic '1923' table lamp, with its original and creative design, reveals a strongly modern soul right from the early years.

Continuing through the exhibition, the visitor is welcomed by glass displays of the 1980s, concluding the displays of the contemporary years with the energy of the colours and the company's trademark return to the forefront. Over the last few years, the designers' creativity has been expressed in everyday objects, transformed into works of art and faithful to the modern vocation that distinguishes NasonMoretti production.

The exhibition, curated by Cristina Beltrami and Chiara Squarchina and organised in collaboration with the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezio, inaugurates the company's centenary and is open to the public until 6th January 2024.
