Description

The palace was born as a patrician residence, in 1689, the Glass Museum of Venice was born in 1861 on the initiative of Antonio Colleoni, then mayor of Murano and of the abbot Vincenzo Zanetti, a lover of glass art, with the idea of establishing an archive of testimonies on the history and life of the island.
The museum soon took over the archive, thanks to numerous donations of ancient and contemporary glass from the Murano furnaces, which in the second half of the nineteenth century began to work intensely again. In support of their activity, Abbot Zanetti in 1862 also annexed a school to the museum where glassmakers studied drawing and the glass of the past preserved there. After the annexation of Murano to the Municipality of Venice in 1923, the museum became part of the heritage of the city, the collections were rearranged in 1932 by Giulio Lorenzetti and Nino Barbantini and enriched with glass from other Venetian civic collections. The museum thus acquires precious Renaissance pieces and later, thanks to deposits of the Archaeological Superintendence, also an important nucleus of ancient glass from excavations. Purchases and donations continue over time to increase the collections, including contemporary works.
