Italo Varisco,
Italo Varisco, born in Murano in 1940, had his apprenticeship in his father's shop, where glass-blowing is still carried out. A Master and a refined artist, he set up Varisco's shop in Treviso, where he works with his son Marco, even if he keeps a strong attachment for Venice and Murano, where he produces unrefined pieces in the furnace. Unlike his father, who is a complete craftsman, but just a craftsman, Italo addressed himself to decoration by engraving, realized by using sandstone or copper-stone and always working directly on the piece. Only when executing extremely difficult works (ex.coat-of-arms), he fixes by pencil the essential marks in his studio, he learns them by heart, and then, drawing forgotten, he directly realizes the glass decoration, often modifying and sometimes directly changing the first idea. He carries out a personal technique: the engraving is not scratched on the surface, but it's cut by depth to get different negative planes. This is a no repentance technique and it requires for absolute certainty, hard readiness, facility, immediateness and inventiveness.

  The son: Marco Varisco junior
Heir of his family tradition, he keeps the teaching and the tradition of his grandfather Marco and his father Italo even though he represents the family continuity of the glass-blower masters, joining with kindness and talent, ancient formulas with new fantasy and enthusiasm. Marco Varisco is keen on his work.At thirteen he was already able to work (he engraved his confirmation candy boxes by himself); after the secondary school third year he attended private evening drawing schools. His luck was that he could work both with his grandfather and his father, then learning two different artisan techniques. Growing up, Marco becomes a more and more irreplaceable collaborator for his father both in terms of creating power and realization; As a matter of fact the undefined idea of the client, has to be elaborated by the piece author who interprets the original contents and creates the work according to his own sensibility. The three generations are present to the Vatican Museum: the grandfather created for the Pope the Votiva Lamp in the Sixtine Chapel; Italo the Plate with the Life-Tree; Marco engraved on a plate the Buranelli Sottoportico. New Marco is full-time working with his father: they created together works for the New York Mayor, King and the Queen of Spain, Bill Clinton.
