Venini - the world-renowned Italian glass company - dates back to 1921, when Paolo Venini (1895-1959), a Milanese lawyer with glass ancestors, and Giacomo Cappellin (1887-1968), a Venetian antique dealer, launched the Cappellin Venini glass factory. Murano Island. Under the artistic direction of Vittorio Zecchin, Cappellin and Venini's company produced high-quality Renaissance cups, jugs and vases.

After World War II, Venini continued to produce glass in modern language, often in collaboration with important mid-century designers and architects, not only Carlo Scarpa and Gio Ponti, but also BBPR,Fulvio Bianconi, Roberto Menghi, Tobia Scarpa, Massimo Vignelli, and Tapio Wirkkala.

When Paolo Venini died in 1959, his company passed to his son-in-law, Ludovico Diaz De Santillan. In the 1970s, Ludovico's daughter, Laura, ran the company until the Gardini and Ferruzzi families took it over in the mid-1980s.
