From transparent glass to milky glass, from delicate simple shapes to Phoenician designs, in over 400 pages and 900 images, The M.V.M. Cappellin Glassworks and the Young Carlo Scarpa tells an essential chapter in the history of Murano glassmaking. In 1925, Giacomo Cappellin (1887–1968) broke with V.S.M. Cappellin Venini & Co. to become one of the most important glass companies in Italy, in no small part thanks to its collaboration with the young architect Carlo Scarpa (1906–78).
