The intrepid connection of various mental representations and the will to take on new challenges by making a lifestyle out of their own passions, marked the birth of Vetriamo in 2004, an intense example of artistic glass handicraft in the heart of Catania.

Artistic figures and innovative colors reveal free imagination by experimenting with elaborate ways to amalgamate glass, shapeless main element around which Vetriamo in ten years has built its entrepreneurial strength.
The creations taking shape on the basis of expert handmade techniques in Mosaic, Glass fusion and Tiffany, come out in favor of his shaper the admiration of a wide and miscellaneous clientele, to the value of which militates the care of exclusive and custom made items in order to meet any requirement ; diversifying the production; Vetriamo, in this way, succeeded in fascinating the most important fairs.

With Art Nouveau and Liberty glass experienced its great revival developing new forms and colors. Louis Comfort Tiffany deeply renewed the stained glass both from the iconographic and the technical point of view, introducing the use of opaque glass and replacing the lead section bar with a copper ribbon. This technique allows to create compositions, even in shapes other than two-dimensional shape (panels and stained glasses).
The flexibility of copper and the delicacy of tin melting, allow the Tiffany technique to be the most suitable in the creation of lamps and small stained glasses that could hardly be realized with the strictest lead technique, used in the creation of large stained glasses.
In the V-VII century A.D. the use of glass mosaic develops in Byzantine art. The mosaics that adorn the walls of the basilicas of the imperial cities, Ravenna and Constantinople, made up of vitreous tiles and gold are of incomparable beauty.
The mosaic technique is very articulate and along with it you give a very unique style to disparate objects such as tables, chairs, decorative bowls, lanterns or other objects. Of great charm, for the amazing and wonderful suggestions of light it produces, the mosaic technique exploits the transparency of glass to bring out the shine of glasses and, together with stucco finish, it gives a very impressive game.
The glass fusion is a very old technique of glass manufacturing; archaeological finds suggest that this technique was already used by the Egyptians and the Romans, and that they had acquired decorative skills on glass.
The glass fusion turns out to be a style in constant evolution and applied technology has fostered the development of historical methodology in new production areas through which you can now find it in furniture, with the magnificent stained walls of melted glass; party favors and objects of decoration of rare elegance but also in bathroom with melted plate glass sinks ; in accessories, from shelves, to mirrors and other home furnishings.
