History of Vistosi: The surname of the Murano glassblowers Vistosi has been known since the 17th century. The nickname "Vistoso" first appears on Gerolamo Gazzabina's baptismal certificate, and the nickname has become part of the surname. From now on, the creations of this Murano family are referred to as Vistosi. The Ghazzabine family has owned the Al Bastian since 1640 and has devoted themselves to the art of blowing for a century. In 1791, Giobatta Gazzabine Vistosi became head of the glaziers and spokesman for the Murano kilns. In 1945, after the dark period of the Second World War, Guglielmo Vistosi, the heir of the Gazzabins, opened a new furnace in Murano and started manufacturing lamps. Under the direction of Gino and Luciano Vistosi, Guglielmo's grandsons, Vistosi's production begins to focus on lighting fixtures, achieving significant success. In 1967, Angelo Mangiarotti designed there "Giogali", a chandelier equipped with a series of modular glass hooks without a fixed structure that has become a symbol of the Vistosi collections. In 1989, Giancarlo Moretti, a Murano glass entrepreneur, acquired the Vistosi brand and founded Vetreria Vistosi, run by his son Matteo. Under the guidance of their grandchildren Guglielmo, Gino and Luciano began collaborating with some of the greatest contemporary designers who have produced iconic creations in the history of Italian industrial design: Vico Magistretti's Alega, Gae Aulenti's table lamp, Michele De Lucchi's Vega. , creations by Ettore Sottsass and Adalberto Dal Lago.
