Da parecchio tempo non avevo più avuto occasione di una visita al Museo del VETRO di Altare.

The other night with some friends accompanied by the leaders of the Museum I stepped through the gates of "Villa Rosa", I dove (with unchanged emotion) in the various rooms of this splendid building in pure Liberty of the early ' 900. Colour, stucco decorations, ceilings, floors, fixtures and stained glass windows were worthy and beautiful setting at bulletin boards in which sparkled and they were gorgeous pretty view the capidopera witness to that noble and ancient art that's 400 went out of Altar the leading Manufactory in Murano glass, along with field, with which he vied and excelled in the world.

A place where you can see past the present, from the manufactory of the 18 century to current and new technologies, a beautiful world of colours and strange shapes
A little gem that should be better known. The architectural container alone deserves a visit. The Museum collection is huge and a worthwhile documentation currently not present on processing and historical archives, with photos and other vintage material. It is a museum which is well worth growing.
The Museum is small but well worth a visit if only for the magnificent building that houses it. In the Museum you can find many items of fine craft. All of which now no longer ...
I regret not having done photos. It is really worth visiting!!!
I saw a gigantic glass vase rose and a praying mantis which I found beautiful and unique, but overall all I was pleasantly surprised
