Description

Toni Zuccheri (1936-2008) was an artist, architect, designer, sculptor and poet of glass and nature: the exhibition and catalogue retrace his incredible career

The son of the animalist painter Luigi Zuccheri, he inherited his father’s passion for animals, which feature frequently in his creations. Toni Zuccheri studied at the architecture faculty of the University of Venice under the guidance of Gardella, Albini, Scarpa and SamonĂ . He started collaborating with Venini in the 1960s: following family tradition, his first works in glass were animals made in polychrome glass using fine techniques such as “murrine”. In 1965, he started collaborating with Gio Ponti, with whom he designed a new system of large glass windows, the “Vetrate Grosse”. After this he expanded his glass production with new colours and subjects, participating in numerous exhibitions around the world.
