History . . .

In 1791 Gio-Batta Vistosi is appointed Gastaldo dell'Arte - head of the glass makers' guild - and becomes the delegate of the furnaces' owners in Murano.

The decline of the Venetian Republic and the riots among the workforce mark a long dark period in the artistic glass production. During this century many furnaces shut down for good and the Art seems to fade. It's not until 1945 that Guglielmo Vistosi opens up a new furnace in Murano. During the 1950's, under the guidance Guglielmo's grandchildren, the Vistosi production starts to focus on lighting items, achieving a considerable success. The decisive move towards success is to tie the production to the most famous designers of the time such as Gae Aulenti, Ettore Sottsass, Adalberto Dal Lago, etc. In 1989 Moretti, a businessman from Murano with a long experience in the glass sector acquires the prestigious brand, giving birth to Vetreria Vistosi. Until this present day, highly skilled craftsmen create the most exciting glass lamps in the world.


The handcrafted products of every single piece is unveiled by imperceptible differences on the surface.
