Andrea Perotta

In love with Muranese glass, Andrea Perotta began to be fascinated by the furnace since, while still a boy, he accompanied tourists to observe glassmaking in the furnaces. The more he gets to know glass, the more he realizes that it has no expressive limits; it really is pure magic.

Thus he begins to understand the need for a liaison between artist and master glassmaker, the holder of a thousand-year-old tradition. “The knowledge that there is here in Murano of glass is nowhere else,” Perotta explains.

“Here glass can be breathed because everyone is involved in it, and this is the greatest wealth we have, the knowledge of a material that is a unique cultural heritage.”
