Napoleone Martinuzzi Lighting

Italian, 1892-1977

Napoleone Martinuzzi was born on May 31, 1892, in Murano.

Active as a sculptor in Rome at the beginning of the 20th century, Martinuzzi came back to Murano in 1925 to found the Vetri Soffiati Muranese Venini and Company, along with Paolo Venini and Francesco Zecchin. At this company, Martinuzzi was the art director.

In 1932, Martinuzzi left the firm and founded the Zecchin Martinuzzi Vetri Artistici e Mosaici along with Francesco Zecchin. Between 1951 and 1952, he became the designer for Arte Vetro di Alberto Seguso. He is still considered one of the finest Murano glass designers of all time. Martinuzzi died on May 15, 1977, in Venice.
