The button, from jewel to fashionable accessory. Querini for Glass Week

September 16-17, 2023. 4 p.m.

On the occasion of The Venice Glass Week we are proposing a themed tour with Barbara Bettoni and Elisabetta Dal Carlo.

The button is a small object with a great past. Through an unusual journey, among surprises and curiosities from our Art Collections, we will rediscover together its role in the history of clothing. We will also open the family wardrobe where a precious set of ‘brilli,’ glass buttons worn by the Querinis in the 1700s, never shown to the public, is kept.

The tour, in Italian language, is designed for an adult audience and is included in the Foundation’s entrance fee.

Reservations are required to participate, which you can make at this link.
