A dance around the fire
It’s 1949, Basilio is 12 years old and he leaves at 5 o’clock in the morning, first he takes the trolleybus and then the coal vaporetto to finally reach Murano. There, there are the fire, the furnace, the laboratory.
At 7 o’clock work begins, Basilio works and lets his art, his hands and fire meet and create, as if in a dance, unique and precious glass pieces.
Stem, leaf, rose, carnation… the flowers enrich chandeliers which, thanks to their transparency, colors and shapes, will illuminate and decorate spaces.
In Murano, Basilio learnt all the techniques of the Venetian tradition and all the secrets of the great Master Glassmakers, it was time to bring his art also to the mainland.
In 1964 he opens his own furnace, on the plot of land next to his house. Now he is free to follow his inspirations and create new and diverse Murano Glass chandeliers.
Over time his works, has gone a long way, gaining recognition across Countries, Seas and Oceans.
