I found this website

Zanetti

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:

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')

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


Hope this helps.  :)

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.


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, http://www.great-glass.co.uk/glass%20notes/manw-z.htm contradicts this with:

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

How about son Licio named after his grand-daddy Licio?   :shock:

Just a thought ...  :roll:

Hi guys,
Oscar is the father.
His pieces have a good reputation here, in Venice.

Ciao!

Just a tad more Licio Zanetti did a number of works in the mid 1970's with Fulvio Bianconi. Might help a little on the time scales of his work.

Lucio stepped down as head of the firm in 1989 and Oscar took over, so gradually the picture becomes clearer.
