Vinicio Vianello, Venice 1923 - 1999, was an artist who liked to experiment with material, shapes and artistic forms. In 1950 Vianello began to try out new constructions and techniques in the sector of glass and industrial design, with the help of various master -makers from Murano. He kept this interest for the rest of his life. Vianello was an exponent of the Spatialism (Spazialismo), like Lucio Fontana. A movement intended to synthesize colour, sound, space, movement and time into a new type of art.
