The Venice Pavillon
& collect
The Venice Pavillon interprets the history of Venice as a point of contact between West and East. Showcasing Venetian Murano glass, it creates a caleidoscopic viewing space for observers, patterning and coloring its environment and providing new viewpoints. (C) MGD Mario Gagliardi Design 2019
