Following World War II Barbini worked as master glassblower and designer successively with Archimede Seguso and Napoleone Martinuzzi, then became a partner with Vetreria Vistosi and, later, Gino Cenedese. With financial assistance from the firm of Salviati & C.For whom he produced products, he formed in 1950 his own glass firm, Vetreria Alfredo Barbini. He died in 2007 at the age of 95.
