Fulvio Bianconi, Figurines / Venini, Venice 1950 -
Fulvio Bianconi (Padova, 1915 – Milan, 1996) arrived in Murano in 1946 to design perfume bottles for the company Giviemme. By then began his collaboration with the Venini glassware company. During all these years Bianconi and Paolo Venini established a fruitful relationship, based on mutual respect and enthusiasm, which led Bianconi to have a strong influence on the production of the glassware company. Bianconi focussed on pieces with sophisticated shapes, characterized by strong colours, designing striking works, some of which sum up the enthusiasm of the “fabulous” Fifties, and later became true icons of Murano glassmaking.
Among our favourites this huge beautiful production of figurines that depict vernacular folk characters, personification of the months, seasons and nature.
