More Real than Real
Bruno Amadi at the Natural History Museum
From 4 to 30 September 2021
Venice, Natural History Museum of Venice Giancarlo Ligabue
More Real than Real is a words game and a challenge to the visitor that in the days of The Glass Week will admire, tracking down, the extraordinary glass miniatures by Bruno Amadi, shown in a comparison with the shells, the roaches, the locusts, the mosquitos, the butterflies, the crustaceans… of the permanent collection of the Venice Natural History Museum Giancarlo Ligabue.
The exhibition – curated by Cristina Beltrami – presents a selection of about forty unique pieces realized by the great Master of the lampworking, from the Seventies till today, contributing to keep alive this technique of eternal wonder.
