The Scuola Abate Zanetti is sponsoring also this year the Murano Prize, a Venetian historic event that honors the art of Murano glass.
The award, back in 2012 after a 21 years hiatus, is organized to enrich the artistic tradition of Murano glass and its experimentation, to provide a meeting point for contemporary art, to rise Murano glass awareness.
