The designer Fulvio Bianconi was born in Padua, Italy in 1915. He studied at the "Carmini School of Art" and worked as an apprentice decorator in the studio of Michele Pinto and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice where he lived during his childhood.

In the mid-1930s, he moved to Milan to work as a graphic designer and illustrator. In 1946 he was hired as a perfume bottle manufacturer for Venini in Murano. This is where he meets Paolo Venini, they collaborate and realize many pieces together, new designs ... Then they separate for divergence of signature attribution of their pieces. Fulvio then continues to work for various factories in Murano.
