AV Mazzega was founded in 1946 by Angelo Vittorio Mazzega. In 1950 his son Gianni Bruno Mazzega started working in the family’s glass factory. Gianni Bruno Mazzega is responsible for the creation of many beautiful lamps.
Today, under the watchful eye of Andrea Mazzega, grandson of Angelo Vittorio, the company works together with high-level international designers. Andrea is the president of the company since 2000.
Born in Murano in 1935 he grew up in one of the oldest families of the Island. Murano glass masters introduced him to the most refined techniques. He quickly started to collaborate with other glass workshops, with special attention for modern design and achieving a combination of technique and craftsmanship which characterizes all his projects.
Carlo has always shown an attitude for innovation without loosing his tradition.
He has chosen AV Mazzega most of all in the 70s and 80s to develop all the collection, that today is an icon of vintage: the creation of the highest quality at the level of its design.
