"My family is from Veneto, the state of Venice. Since I was a little boy, on the weekends they took me for a walk to Venezia and to Murano, where they always bought me an ice cream near a furnace.
So, a little for the ice cream, a little for the showcases of the shops full of the masterpieces of Murano, the delight for the ice cream mixed with the taste for the beauty of the Murano artistic glass were capturing in my young soul the passion for this unique place in the world: the island of Murano and its art!
I remember the first time I went into a furnace from my father's hand, to see a master from Murano training his apprentices and entertaining the tourists with a show of skill. What an impression it made me to see a ball of incandescent glass transform slowly and under the quick and skillful touch-ups of the master on a horse, then in a clown or a multicolored flower! It seemed like entering a fairy tale where magic was possible and dreams came true.
From those early days instilled in my heart the love and appreciation for this noble art and as I grew and met the teachers and their workshops, formed in me the desire to share in some way this art and promote it around the world .
To be a master of Murano for me is like being a paladin of beauty, a hero who fights against the dragon of his oven that shoots glass at 1,000 degrees to be tamed in delightful, harmonious and delicate forms by the master.
There is no word to describe the talent of these artists who closely imitate the divine creative act. Since blowing in the incandescent turned sand give life to wonderful figures and spiders.
The chandeliers in particular are what I prefer from the artistic creation of Murano, since the final product is not simply something that gives light to our house. I see every time a client receives his lamp and turns it on, not only the bulbs light up, but his whole soul, in static admiration for so much new beauty!
By the way, whenever I can, I love personally putting the lamps in my clients' houses, and it fascinates me and it fills me with satisfaction to see their faces when the lamp is armed and they turn it on for the first time. The faces of admiration that reflect their satisfaction is something that moves me every day.
Promoting the art of Murano transforms me in some way into a paladin of the same beauty of the teachers my friends. Because in a world that is increasingly oblivious to beauty, providing beauty to my clients is more than a passion. I consider it a true mission.
So I have been collaborating for 30 years promoting the work of my countrymen, the masters of Murano, and my clients all over the world continue to appreciate and enrich their homes and their lives with our lamps.
Now through MuranoDirect, I have achieved a formula to provide directly to the public, without the intermediaries that have always accompanied me. The best of Murano at the best market price!
