A special event for a special occasion. The inauguration ceremony took place yesterday, Wednesday 7 November, for the new Barovier&Toso Palazzo in Murano. The building, just steps away from the historical headquarters of the company founded in 1295, has undergone a complete internal renovation: a project designed by the Milanese studio Calvi Brambilla.

The two designers have created a modern interpretation of the most typical architectural elements present in antique noble palaces: “To make the new building we studied a space in which history and the contemporary can coexist, since they are also the two primary essences of Barovier&Toso,” reveals Paolo Brambilla. “We have succeeded in harmonising an essential and modern interior concept with the majesty of the glass of Murano, celebrating it in a context brimming with light and reflection,” adds Fabio Calvi.

Rinaldo Invernizzi, President of the world’s most antique glassworks, talks about Palazzo Barovier&Toso: “It is a project which means very much to us, confirming our commitment toward a policy of constant growth and internationalisation. Having reached this great result, we celebrate our history, our specialised workers and our extraordinary glass masterpieces, a winning combination of innovation and tradition, art and design”.
