Carlo Moretti is a “factory of originals”, one of the last few remaining in Murano. Founded more than fifty years ago, on 30th October 1958 by Carlo and Giovanni Moretti, two young brothers from a Murano family of glass entrepreneurs. Carlo Moretti has always created Murano Crystal objects, combining innovation and continuous research. Private collectors seek out these unique, numbered and signed pieces for their recognizable style falling between industrial design and artistic creation. Most importantly, as confirmation of their quality and value, the Moretti pieces are included in the permanent collections of the most important Decorative Arts Museums of the world, including the Berlin Staatliche Museen Preussischer Kulturbesitz Kunstgewerbemuseum, the Geneva Musée Ariana, the Helsinki National Board of Antiquities, the Prague Museum of Decorative Arts,London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, the New York Cooper-Hewitt Museum and The Museum of Modern Art, The Corning Museum of Glass, the Paris Musée des Arts Décoratifs, the Lisbon Museo Do Design at the Cultural Centre of Belém, the Charleroi Musée du Verre, not to mention the Murano Museo del Vetro.Discover more
