Glass masters
Amedeo Rossetto

Master Amedeo Rossetto has inherited the knowledge and secrets of a family of glass blowers: from his father he learned the art of murrine production, the working of the most traditional glass of Murano.

He was a student of Carlo Tosi, he started his apprenticeship as a mere helper at Barovier&Toso, achieving the status of Master at 24 years of age. More than forty years later Amedeo Rossetto still works the glass with the same unbridled passion and has handed his knowledge down over to new generations.

Glass Masters


When visiting the Venier glassworks you have the sensation of being in an ancient renaissance workshop where the ceaseless work is intertwined with the masters’ creativity, with knowledge of the materials, with rigor, with the desires of noble ladies and patrons, and with the reverent obedience of the assistants.

The Master Glassmakers are undoubtedly the key figures. From a very early age (10-12 years), they have shared their existence with the incandescent glow of glass: the experience and traditions of centuries live in them, renewed through the specialization in few, if not in only one, work process for which they are known and held in high esteem: there is he who as a matter of fact is the master in lamps, he who is the master in sculptures, he who is the master in vases … and they have gained a renown that has even reached important Heads of State and their works are displayed in the most famous museums of the world.
