Murano blown and hand-crafted glass. "Il Fazzoletto", or the handkerchief, was one of the first designs submitted by Fulvio Bianconi for VENINI, and it has been a global success ever since. This fascinating design is indissolubly linked with VENINI and has become one of its most iconic products. The technique used to make these vases involves the glass maker shaping the glass while still hot into the identifiable shape. The first one appeared in 1949 and soon become part of the permanent collection at New York's Museum of Modern Art.
Fulvio Bianconi (1915 – 1996) was born in Padua. He collaborated with the Mondadori, Bompiani and Garzanti publishing houses as graphic designer and illustrator and frescoed the Galtrucco stores and the pavilions of the trade fair. In 1946 Bianconi frequently went to Murano to learn more about glass art and there he met Paolo Venini who, sensing the young artist’s creative spirit, invited him to collaborate in the glassworks. New techniques in glass art and the reworking of traditional methods were the fruit of Fulvio Bianconi’s creative labors, establishing a link with the Murano story of great modernity.
