Luciano Vistosi was born in Venice and grew up on the island of Murano, where his family owned a glass factory and created industrial production.
In 1952, he founded the new Vetreria Vistosi to create objects linked to more common design research. Production is focused on lighting.
Luciano Vistosi's work also leads to the creation of new products such as his various lamp series including Neverrino, Bissa e Bissona and Onfale. His first exhibition took place in 1968 at the Alfieri Gallery in Venice.
At the end of the 1960s, he turned to the production of blown glass luminaires. His first large sculptures were created in glass furnaces in the early 1970s. After that, Vistosi alternated the various techniques he had experimented with, leading over the years to sculptures of blown glass and carved glass blocks.
Today, Luciano Viostosi still lives in Venice and works in his studio in Murano.
