This volume is the first catalogue raisonnè and the entire index of the over four hundred artistic glass pieces executed by the famous Venetian architect Carlo Scarpa, between 1927 and 1947 for the Murano glassmaking firms of Giacomo Cappellin and Paolo Venini. The works represent an important part of the early years of his activity. Often unique prototypes, they show Scarpa's exceptional designing inventiveness and an incredible variety of typologies and decorative types, from the 'lattimi' (milk-white opaque glass) to then 'a incalmo' (grafted) series, from 'Phoenician' decoration to other famous styles such as 'tessere' (mosaic-like pieces) and 'a bollicine (tiny bubbles).
