The magic of Flavio Poli’s submerged glass

Flavio Poli (1900-1984) was one of the unparalleled masters of Murano glass. Born in Chioggia, Poli started collaborating with Seguso Vetri d’Arte and eventually became its artistic direct in the second half of the 1930s.

His works in submerged glass (made by overlapping different layers of glass, with a variety of consistency and colors) were presented in various editions of Venice’s Biennale and Milan’s Triennale, as well as in the World Fair held in Brussels.

Today, his masterpieces are on display in Museo Boncompagni Ludovisi and Trocello’s Museum of Glass.
