Angelo Brotto

Angelo Brotto (1914-2002), was a venetian designer and artist that was better known for his work in glass.
In 1941 he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. Immediately thereafter the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs commissioned him to paint frescoes in Montenegro.
During the 1960-1970s he collaborated with the Murano glass fabric Esperia, which made him a prolific lighting designer. His lamps, in particular, were quickly acclaimed for capturing the sensitivity of the time, creating playful and artistic modern shapes, and for breaking with the traditional ways of glassmaking in Murano.
During his career he won many design and artistic awards such as the ones in Bergamo, Cremona, Suzzara, and Verona, as well as the first exhibition of engravings in Rome.
