Paolo Venini (1895-1959) founded with two partners Vetri Soffiati Muranesi Venini et Cie in 1925. After the departure of his two partners, he secured the collaboration of Carlo Scarpa, artistic director, from 1932. He influenced the creation of Venini until the 1960s. Venini called on numerous designers, including Fulvio Bianconi, Gio Ponti, Tyra Lundgren and Tommasso Buzzi. After the Second World War, the production was at the forefront in the treatment of shapes and colors. The firm secured the services of the Finnish designer, Tapio Virkkala from 1966.
