History of Vistosi:
In the 17th century, the name of Vistosi became the name of the members of the family of glassmakers of Murano, Gazzabin, who owned the oven "Al Bastian" since 1640 and who had already devoted himself for a century to the art of blowing. In 1791, Giobatta Gazzabin Vistosi became the head of the masters of the art of glass and the representative of the masters of the furnaces of Murano. After a dark period, during which the art of glass seemed to be at sunset, at the end of the Second World War, Guglielmo Vistosi, heir to the Gazzabins, opened a new kiln in Murano in 1945 and began to devote himself to in the production of objects for lighting. In 1989, Giancarlo Moretti, a Murano glass entrepreneur, took over the Vistosi brand and founded the Vetreria Vistosi, headed by his son Matteo.In the second Eurispes report on excellence of the year 2007, Vetreria Vistosi got an excellent recognition of the company, among the 100 best selected in Italy.
Presence in the history of Italian design:
Under the direction of Guglielmo's grandchildren, Gino and Luciano, the collaboration with the greatest contemporary designers was born, from which were born emblematic creations of the history of Italian industrial design: Alega de Vico Magistretti, the lamp lamp of table of Gae Aulenti, Vega of Michele De Lucchi, the creations of Ettore Sottsass and Adalberto Dal Lago.
In 1967, Angelo Mangiarotti designed a series of modular glass hooks without a fixed structure, to which he gave the name of Giogali , which from that moment became the symbol of the Vistosi collections.
During the 1990s, a productive and commercial reorganization was born, with new collaborations with young names in Italian design.
