Scrigno d'Africa, African Treasure Chest
During the exhibition, the Committee for the Safeguarding of the Art of Venetian Glass Beads (CPVV), in collaboration with the Gallery, will curate a section dedicated to contemporary Venetian beads inspired by the old trade beads returned from Africa, lost and found on the routes of their journeys, along with tools and materials.
In December 2020, the Art of Glass Beads was recognized as Intangible Cultural Heritage Of Humanity (Unesco 2003 Convention). This initiative is proposed for the enhancement of intangible heritage linked to glass beads Art.
