The Great Murano Glass Masters: Carlo Moretti. When talking of the great glass masters of Murano one does not need to go back hundreds of years in history.
We need only look a few decades back to find some of the most ingenious and innovative minds behind this craft. Amongst them we find Carlo Moretti , a company established no more than 60 years ago, which has proven to be a true pioneer and innovator in the history of Murano glass. Created in 1958 in Murano by brothers Carlo and Giovanni Moretti, this company stands as one of a kind in the citys vast history of glassmakers. Carlo Moretti gathers the excellence of Italian design, hundreds of years of Venetian tradition, and immense entrepreneurial courage. The firm, born out of love and admiration for glassmaking, takes inspiration from the Venetian Lagoon and its beautiful colors.
Collecting Moretti artworks means being fully aware of owning one of a kind pieces produced in limited editions, authentic, and with masterful know-how. A lover of classical music, traveling, and architecture, Carlo Moretti was a true Venetian.
Born in Murano in 1934, he studied to become a lawyer, but soon changed course after discovering his passion for Murano glass. Fully dedicating his time and perseverance to glassmaking, he founded Carlo Moretti along with his brother, Giovanni, in 1958. Carlo took full control of the creative side of the company, looking over the design and production process at all times. It was his love for different cultures and constant learning that gave him a keen eye for innovation.
His time spent traveling and visiting museums around the world gave him an ample vision in classic and contemporary design, opening his mind to new and unforeseen trends in the glassmaking industry. Carlo Morettis passing in 2008, coinciding with the brands 50th anniversary, left his brother Giovanni at the front of the company, along with a personal style never to be forgotten.
