Background information:
Angelo Barovier, son to the great Ercole Barovier,  belongs to a lineage of glass craftsman dating back to 1324.  The Baroviers rose to prominence during the Italian Rennaissance in Murano by pushing to new heights the production and design of glass.  Angelo took over the Barovier & Toso company at Ercoles’ death in 1972.  
Angelo is most likely named for his ancestor, Angelo the Great credited with the The “Barovier wedding cup”, which dates from around 1450.  Angelo was praised by the Venetians as one of the greatest artsist of his time and was responsible for innovations leading to clear crystal and new techniques for painting on glass and coloring glassware.
Dating back to the pinnacle of his father Ercole Barovier’s career  during mid 20th century, Angelo helped manage the company and contributed his own designs.
The presence of  Ercole Barovier as designer was crucial for the company and Angelo Barovier, like his father,  demonstrated a deep and skilled artistic sensibility not only in glass design but also in abstract painting both of which have been widely exhibited.
Angelo, like his father, was named Cavaliere del Lavoro (1996).
The Guinness Book of Records named the Baroviers as the world's longest-established family of glassworkers and Family Business magazine ranked them the 5th oldest business in the world.
