In Murano in 1932, Antonio Seguso and his sons joined forces with Napoleone Barovier and Luigi 'Olimpio' Ferro to found Vetreria Artistica Barovier & C.; the name of the firm was changed to Seguso Vetri D'Arte in 1937. The turbulent era of the company's history - marred by some severe economic downturns - ended in 1973 when it was taken over by Maurizio Albarelli. Today it is owned by Gianluca Seguso.
On entering the firm in 1945, Flavio Poli turned the programme around to make it more contemporary. Thus Seguso Vetri D'Arte became the leading glass factory on Murano. Flavio Poli's designs chimed perfectly with the 1950s and '60s zeitgeist. Winning the most prestigious awards (including the Milan Triennale and the Venice Biennale), his creations in glass were now launched to worldwide acclaim.
This book, for which the author studied almost all the Seguso archive material (including more than 30 000 drawings), tells the story of the glass factory from its beginning to 1973, and includes a selection of drawings, catalogues and works.
