Italian/American Glass Maestro:
Allesandro Moretti (1922-1998)
Early on Moretti worked at the “Seguso’’ factory, which specialized in “artistic glass’’. He later moved to the “Mazzega’’ glass factory. In this factory, under the guidance of “Maestro Pavanello’’, he achieved the title of “Maestro’’. He was 26 years of age; one of the youngest artists ever to receive such a coveted title. He also was a coveted “Maestro’’ at the famous “Venini’’ Factory.
In 1956 he moved to the United States to the center of glassmaking in West Virginia. The history of the Moretti family is inscribed in “The Gold Book,’’ which is maintained at the famed “Museum of Glass’’ in Murano.
