Cesare Toffolo

Born in Muran in 1961, he is Giacomo's grandson. His father, Florino gained the title of maestro at the early age of seventeen at Venini's and later specialized in the avant-garde technique of blown lampworked glass.

At fifteen years of age, Cesare began working at his father's studio and is now considered by many to be the finest technical flameworker in the world. His flawless technique and perfect forms comprise the technical standard by which other flameworking is measured. He is the one who projected and created in 1977 the Centro Studio Vetro, the only nonprofit cultural association in Murano, whose aim is to support and promote the culture of artistic glasses, both in Italy and abroad. Since 2001, Cesare has been coordinating the glass workshops in Venice, in S. Servolo Island as Artistic Director.
