Introducing Roberto Beltrami: The Maestro of Murano's Glass Renaissance

In the heart of the Venetian lagoon, where tradition dances with innovation, there stands a beacon of creativity: Wave Murano Glass. And at its helm, guiding this avant-garde vessel through the sea of tradition, is none other than Roberto Beltrami – a visionary glass master, artist, and ambassador of the craft ecosystem like no other.

Roberto’s journey into the world of glassblowing is as intricate and mesmerizing as the delicate pieces he creates. Trained in the time-honored techniques of Murano, his passion for the craft burns brightly, illuminating pathways to new horizons in the world of artisanal glass.

As the CEO of Wave Murano Glass, Roberto leads a diverse team of local and international artisans, each bringing their own unique flair and expertise to the table. Together, they form a symphony of creativity, blending tradition with innovation in a harmonious dance of molten glass. Wave Murano Glass is not just a factory; it’s a testament to the power of innovation and the resilience of tradition.

At Wave, Roberto and his team have invested in cutting-edge furnaces, making their factory the most energy-efficient on the island of Murano. But their commitment to sustainability doesn’t end there. Through a combination of traditional techniques and modern practices, they are shaping a future where craftsmanship and conservation go hand in hand.



Artist’s and glass master’s influence extends beyond the realm of glassblowing. He is a fervent advocate for bringing new ideas and innovation into traditional contexts. His experiences and insights serve as a guiding light for artisans around the world, showing them that tradition and innovation are not mutually exclusive but rather complementary forces that can propel craft into the future.

In a digital age where storytelling reigns supreme, Roberto understands the importance of narrative in promoting artisans and their work. Through his own journey and the resources he shares, he empowers craftsmen and craftswomen to craft compelling stories that resonate with audiences far and wide.
