Visit Palazzo Barovier&Toso in Murano, the exclusive palace that, thanks to the interior design conceived by the Studio Calvi Brambilla, is a true festival of light. Bridging innovation and tradition, art and design, the project celebrates Barovier&Toso’s 700 years of sophisticated skills, craftsmanship and creativity. More than 900 square metres spread over three floors, Palazzo Barovier&Toso showcases the spectacular and enchanting luxury of the world’s most famous Murano chandeliers, an experience aimed to celebrate this unique “Made in Italy” brand.

Venetian heritage Blown away



The magnificence of the world’s most famous Murano chandeliersThe Venetian glass company Barovier&Toso is well known for creating lighting for prestigious residences and palaces worldwide, admired for their dazzling style and sophisticated craftsmanship. The roots of this excellence lie in their unparalleled heritage: the first Barovier mentioned as glass master on Murano island dates back to an age when glass blowing itself was considered an emerging art. No surprise, as it was 1295! Since then, several members of the Barovier family have chaired the glassmakers guild of Murano, intertwining the history of their family with the history of this craft. The most famous family member was Angelo Barovier, a true Italian Renaissance man, who back in the 1400s invented the exceptionally pure cristallino glass and created pieces which are still regarded by many as the greatest glass masterpieces ever crafted. More than 20 generations later, the company has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and taste that they safeguard and express through all their artistic glass creations.
