Lino Tagliapietra

Lino Tagliapietra was born August 10, 1934 in Murano, Italy and has also worked extensively in the United States. As a teacher and mentor, he has played a key role in the international exchange of glass blowing processes and techniques between the principal American centers and his native Murano, but his influence is apparent in the whole world.

Lino Tagliapietra:
“I don’t invent anything new; I personalize something … and that makes it something that nobody has done before.”

La Murrina

The La Murrina company was founded in the 1960s as a small business started by a group of glass-worker masters. In 1974, La Murrina was bought by a family from Milan. Today they are located at Via Isonzo, 26, 22078 Turate (Co), Italy. The furnace is still on the Murano island and located at 17, Riva Longa, Murano Venice, Italy.
