Arte Nuova, Pustetto & Zanetti Glass Identification Guide + Gallery

Back to Glass Encyclopedia Home

The Arte Nuova glass factory was founded on the island of Murano, Venice, Italy, in 1954. There is precious little information available about this company, even the factory name is uncertain, but it is possible different names were used at different times. There are three known factory labels. One uses the name "Pustetto & Zanetti Murano", another uses "Arte Nuova Murano" and the third has both names. Different sources give the closing date as 1965 or 1968. During this time, Arte Nuova become known for their high quality work using the sommerso technique, winning prizes at the 1958 world fair in Brussels. According to online sources, glassmakers and designers involved with the factory include Itamo Pustetto, Licio Zanetti, Mario Fuga, Aldo Fuga, Nino D'Este, and Alessandro Lenarda.
