The Teatrino hosts the screening of the documentary Santillana Associati in the presence of the director Gianluigi Calderone. The film narrates the events that followed the expulsion of the Santillana-Venini family from the Venini company in 1986 and the attemps of its members to recreate a new enterprise, a new glass brand, Eos, the “sun that rises with the dawn”. The death of the head of the family, Ludovico Diaz de Santillana, the decline of Murano’s fortune and the persistent hostility of those who had ousted the family from Venini led to the failure of these attempts, in 1993. However, the seven years of activity produced a flourishing of valuable works by the many artists and designers who collaborated there: Lino Tagliapietra, Richard Meitner, Toots Zynsky, Serge Mansau, Arlon Bayliss, Massimo Morozzi, and mainly Ludovico, Laura and Alessandro de Santillana.
