I found this website


But it seems to contradict itself on who is son and who is father  :?

Oops! I read your message again and realize this is the website that probably lead to your confusion  :oops:

Tony H:
Thanks yes that is why I am here does anyone know.

Much of the glass listed here appears to be from Oscar, and the modernist nature of some sculptures could lead one towards the 1960s, hence the father.

I just came across this on the site (click 'about')

--- Quote ---The Zanetti Vetreria Artistica was founded in 1956 by the glassmaster Oscar Zanetti and his son Licio.
--- End quote ---

Hope this helps.  :)

David E:
Sorry that was me – the phantom log out caught me!

Like Connie I've just come across the next quote:

--- Quote ---In 1989 master Licio Zanetti stepped down in favor of his son Oscar, who had been working by his side since his youth.
--- End quote ---

So this is no help at all! However, other sites seem to confirm Licio was very prominent around the 1960s, so I would say he is the father.

BUT, contradicts this with:

--- Quote ---Zanetti, Vetreria Fratelli
Murano, Venice, Italy (1956 - )
Founded by Oscar Zanetti & his son Licio. Luciano Zanetti.
--- End quote ---

Grief, what a tangled "web" we lead...
