Looking at the base, you can see that it was blown with a moul. It seems to have printed (with the moul) "Italy" on the side and a logo ("B" ?) on the center.
Personally I don't think that it was made in Murano.
1) The mouls are not very used
2) If mouls are used, they are at 99% not of this kind

May be central Italy?

SIncerely

That is the Bormiolo mark.

That is the Bormiolo mark.

Bormioli is the most famous name, but there are several glass factories with this name:

http://www.bormiolirocco.com/
http://luigibormioli.com/

I have no ideas about their logos...
