Carlo Moretti was born in Murano in 1934. He lived in Venice with his wife Bruna Matteotti in an apartment overlooking the rooftops and canals adjacent to the Rialto bridge until his sudden death, on May 30 th 2008.
His brother Giovanni is now in charge of the firm.
After having graduated in the classical studies he enrolled in law school but, lured by the irresistible call of his own family’s patrimony - Murano Crystal Glass - in 1958 he founded, together with his brother Giovanni, the Carlo Moretti firm, where he is mainly responsible for the design and production of the firm’s artifacts.
During the 80s he animated the creation of a number of consortiums on the island of Murano and, in particular, the establishment of the island’s new museum of contemporary glass.
Carlo Moretti has been awarded with numerous prizes and international rewards and has been invited to hold conferences on his work in cultural and art institutions worldwide.
