From Venetian masks to glass, Fabio Novembre adds a tinge of irony to the Fornace (Kiln), creating a work that has a face and a soul. Classic yet eccentric.
“According to the Venetian tradition wearing a mask means to deny one’s own identity escaping from social conventions and regaining the freedom that Wilde, in his famous quote, defines as sincere. Venini is one of the latest names that still evoke the magic of Venice, through sand and fire, colour and transparency, Prometheus myth and furnaces of Murano. Murana is the name of the mask I have designed for Venini: a volume to wear for filtering the reality through the glass of its surfaces, a face without sexual or racial connotations able to represent every kind of humanity, a soul for an object that could be casually perceived as a vase… Good morning Mrs Mask, good morning Mrs Murana.” Fabio Novembr
