DIPI Sas Vetreria Artigiana di Sara Rossi
Sas Di Pi Vetreria Artigiana di Sara Rossi At the heart of glass-working furnace DiPi in Murano is the master, Imperio Rossi.
Born in Murano in 1951, he started working alongside his father at the age of 13, and after a long apprenticeship in the most renowned furnaces of Murano, he became a master glassmaker himself.
He has owned his own furnace since 1986, initially specializing in production of objects with “millefiori” murrine. Imperio Rossi says of his job: "I often can't wait to render a drawing into a piece of work. It's an irrepressible desire to give tangibility to my imagination. I'm in love with my craft, because it allows me the chance to give shape and substance to something that rises inside me." His work is displayed in private and public collections in New York, Madrid, Vienna, Tokyo.
