- Curator's comments
- See Stefano Casciani, 'Industrial Art. Objects, Play and Thought in Danese Production', Milan 1988, pp. 170-171. The glasses were given the name 'Paro'. Danese had previously worked only with Enzo Mari and Bruno Munari. The collaboration with Castiglioni was a new development. Danese had not produced drinking glasses before. Castiglioni exploited the traditional methods of master glassblowers while adding the numour and amusement charcteristic of his work. The two parts of the glass were blown separately then welded together and ground.
