Griffe Montenapoleone by Vetrerie di Empoli
Set of Six Arlecchino Small Chalices
At the beginning of 1900, Vetrerie di Empoli added an artistic collection to their production of traditional bottles and jugs, receiving great success that lead to the opening of their flagship stores in Roma, Torino, and Milano, in the famous via Montenapoleone. With time, these creations became less and less rustic and their elegance is now cherished by an international and sophisticated clientele that appreciate these precious and unique objects, which are products of expertise that has been running in the family for more than a century.
Looking for emotions
In the first years of the last century, Vetrerie di Empoli began to produce artistic glassware for dining, alongside its traditional lines of wine flasks and demijohns; the venture soon became a commercial success, with an unexpected artistic and cultural impact.
In 1935, decades ahead of its time, Vetrerie di Empoli opened branded stores in Rome, Turin and Milan, and the green glass of Empoli began to be seen in many Italian homes.
With the passing of time, the traditional glassware evolved from plain rustic styles to increasingly elegant designs, and additional stores sprang up in Milan, first in Via Pietro Verri and then in the chic central location of via Montenapoleone.
Today, Vetrerie di Empoli routinely welcomes the most sophisticated international clientele, satisfying their demands for a distinctive product of high quality and innovative, striking design.
This excellence is guaranteed by the family’s dedication to realizing new and original collections, some even patented internationally, thanks to expertise accumulated over more than a century.
