“Bianconi was a strange character, irritating from a certain point of view, but fantastic. Irritating because he was a volcano and if you did not listen immediately to what he wanted, he would become nervous. I remember some meetings where my father got to the point of saying ” Enough!” Because he always came with new ideas. Let’s say that in terms of production he was a complication, but he was great for art, for what could be done that was new”
No longer the refined search for forms and nuances of colors, the extenuated preciousness of glassmaker-architects. The post-war period for Venini consists of the Commedia dell’Arte figurines and primary colors of Bianconi, the “false child”. Modern art erupted into Murano”.
