The chandeliers Murano glass Ca'rezzonico

Murano glass chandeliers

of the Ca'rezzonico type:


They take their name from one of the most

famous palaces in Venice, located in the

Dorsoduro district and overlooking the

Grand Canal between Palazzo Contarini Michiel

and Palazzo Bernardo Nani, not far from



Ca' Rezzonico in short is the seat of the

Museum of the Venetian 18th century, but

it also houses an immense historical

treasure of Murano glass chandeliers:

the Ciocca or Rezzonico chandelier to

understand us, the first one designed

and designed by Giuseppe Briati and

made in Murano in the second half

of the 18th century. A monumental

Murano galss chandelier of sumptuousness

and lightness, supported by an innovative

interlocking technique that seems to cancel

the supporting structure among the coloured

reflections. The Ciocca or rezzonico

chandelier is the focal point of

the exhibition curated by Cornelia

Lauf under the scientific direction

of Gabriella Belli.
