Venini - collectors' pieces of Murano glass
About the brand Venini
Venini – Finest Murano glass from Venice
The Italian glass manufacturer Venini is located on the famous island of Murano. Murano is actually a group of islands to the north-east of Venice and renowned around the world for its glass products. Murano glass is one of the most exclusive and coveted articles in the area of decorative arts. Each piece from Venini stands for quality Italian work and is one of a kind. In 1921, Giacomo Cappellini, an antiques dealer, and Paolo Venini, a Milanese lawyer from a family specialised in glass-blowing, founded the Italian glass manufactory.
Venini stands apart from other glass manufacturers with its very distinct style and unique glass colours. Achieving the superior colour of the Murano glass demands great precision from the Venini glass blowers during the composition process. These traditional techniques of glass manufacture represent a skill no longer learned by many glass blowers today. The secret techniques of glass art are passed on from generation to generation.
