Scarpa, Carlo

(1906 - 1978)

Carlo Scarpa was an Italian architect and designer. He graduated from the Accademia in Venice, with the title of Professor of Architecture and he apprenticed with the architect Francesco Rinaldo. Most of his work was built in the Veneto, but also in the rest of Italy and other countries. His most famous design was probably the Brion Cemetery in Altivole.

In 1932, Scarpa started working for Venini and was the artistic director of the brand until 1947.

It is located just near Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands, within two hours from Amsterdam, Bruxelles and Cologne. Only part of the collection is shown on the website.
