Laura Diaz De Santillana

After finishing the classical studies, she moved to New York, where she frequented the School of Visual Arts in the years 1975 – 1976. After working as a graphic designer at the design firm of Vignelli Associates in 1976, she returned to Italy and began her active collaboration with the Venini & C, where she came in contact with many Italian and foreign artists. During this period she used the techniques of Murano to create refined works with unusual colours, among which the plates in “vetro mosaico” deserve particular mention. Her glassworks have received many prizes and recognitions, and are held by the most important museums of the world. She collaborated with Venini between 1976 and 1985, during which she designed a range of articles.
