"The thirteen Murano furnaces who have collaborated for the realization of the "Murano Glass Beyond the Barricades", interpret in an artistic way an object of street furniture that today has become indispensable for the people’s safety in public spaces: the Traffic barriers, transforming these objects of prevention and safety, dark, gray, visually heavy and cumbersome into colorful, vivid artworks rich of historycal, cultural and beauty meaning.

"The objective of the draft - explained Luciano Gambaro - is to show the public the ability to interpret the glass: its strength to interpret in an explosive way the corrent issues. With Murano Glass BTB we make a comparison the Murano glass with new issues and we make it a living, flowing, current and evolving material. Personally I love to define the project an artistic exercise. With this project we want to reiterate our masters’s great skill, a challenge that I hope will be considered won".
