In 1859, Vicenza-born lawyer, Antonio Salviati, started his glass works career establishing
Salviati & C. uniting the production of mosaics and enamels with that of blown glass, becoming an example of excellence throughout the world.
A tireless researcher, his furnace produced extremely sophisticated “lattimi”, intricately woven filigrees, opalescent glass with exquisite floral applications and aventurine threads.
Accuracy and precision, together with the initial obligation to attend the in-company art school, are the legacy that still today characterize its production.
Each Salviati Murano glass piece is made with extreme care and attention: from nuances to reflections all the way to the form studies. Each production phase is carefully evaluated, every detail receives the respect it deserves.
Salviati is the result of a tireless historical process that forged and influenced it: its contemporary glass is expertly blended with the thousand years history of Murano glass. Venice gives it both life and inspiration, while always looking outwards, towards the world.
A place where new ideas are generated and given form, where form becomes light and light becomes space. Creativity needs room to breathe.
