One of the most important changes during the 20th century was the evolution of the decorative arts from the rank of crafts to that of art: glass, today, has duly earned its place in museums, markets and the public opinion. The extraordinary inventiveness between the end of the 1940s and throughout the 1950s, together with the enormous success enjoyed by Venini design, helped arouse international interest in Venetian glass. New techniques, impossible to imitate, risked consigning the firm's earlier production (from 1925 to the Second World War) undeservingly to the shadows while they placed Venini artworks among the highest artistic expressions of our times.The much awaited reprint of the last edition of the catalogue raisonne has been enlarged with a section on lighting (lamps and chandeliers), a Dictionary of artists, the Red Catalogue, the Green Catalogue and the extended Blue Catalogue (doubled compared to the earlier edition). These three catalogues contain all the reproductions of Venini items as distributed in shops; the most important pieces are grouped together on a scale of 1:10, in chronological order, accompanied by notes on the technique and materials used (blown, pulegosi, pietra dura, in corpo, flowers and fruit, lattimi, a mezza filigrana, a bollicine, sommersi, pesanti, diamante, corrosi, frames, a treccia, clocks, a rilievi, handles and ash trays). Since these catalogues are not for sale, they have become extremely rare, but indispensable for the historical and technical information they contain.
