Born with the name Fratelli Donà, the business was founded in Murano in 1937 by Arnaldo Donà, Alberto Donà’s father. Thanks to that, Alberto Dona’ began working in the field at the age 13, collaborating with many masters and having the opportunity to travel abroad to Venezuela to work with glass. From that moment, his art became famous for the colors and mostly for the dimensions. In 2001 he had a one-man show at the Vassel Art Gallery in London and he was selected to furnish the lighting for the Hiroshima Memorial Museum.
In the 70s Donà opened his own workshop where he became known for his unique ability to invent colors in glass never before seen, as well as his use of innovative forms.
