One of the oldest traditional processes already in use in the XVI Century.
It is done by applying under heat on the surface of an item a homogeneous series of transparent colourless glass canna , with the core of coloured glass.
The great maestro Archimede Seguso did extensive research and many experiments during the 50s and 60s to partially model some filigrana parts and then applying them to the items: some very elegant series were designed this way, such as "spiraline", "composizione lattimo", "filigrana stellata", "merletto" vases and still others.
