The volume is the catalog of the Barry Friedman & Venetian Heritage Collection, a recent donation to the Glass Museum of Murano. The collection gathers precious glass pieces signed by Bianconi, Buzzi, Nason, Poli, Scarpa, Zecchin, crafted in the most important and historic Murano glass factories such as Alfredo Barbini, Barovier e Toso, Cenedese, Salviati, Seguso, Venini, and Vistosi (just to name a few). These pieces represent a group of artworks that further enrich the historical and artistic heritage of the permanent museum exhibition.

The ensemble of the 177 glass pieces collected by Barry Friedman also serves as a comprehensive showcase of possibilities, insights, but above all, the countless alchemical opportunities of glass, unparalleled and unsurpassable.
