Vittorio Livi has always had one passion: glass. Fullet, the very first company founded by him, produced coloured glass for the furniture industry and was followed by a succession of companies: Artiglass, Curvovetro, Cromoglass and Vellutart. The merger between these companies in 1973 resulted in FIAM, the first company to produce furnishing items in curved glass. Thanks to its technology and partnerships with top international designers, FIAM has become a leader in this industry and some of its products are on display in twenty-five museums worldwide. After overseeing the restoration of Montegridolfo, a walled town dating back to the 7th century B.C., in 1992 Vittorio Livi purchased and renovated Villa Miralfiore, a historic building in Pesaro constructed in 1260. A part of the villa is dedicated to “Spazio Miralfiore”, a museum for works of art in glass produced by Livi and numerous Italian and international artists.
The company designs, develops and produces bent glass furniture in collaboration with renowned designers and architects such as Daniel Libeskind, Massimiliano Fuksas, Philippe Starck, Marcel Wanders and Cini Boeri. The production processes used are at the same time crafts and industrial, merging tradition and innovation.
