Glassmaking has long been a source of pride for Vittorio Livi.
In the beginning, there was "Fullet," the company that Vittorio Livi founded to make decorative glasses for the furniture market. Artiglass, Curvovetro, Cromoglass, and Vellutart came next. In 1973, as he was establishing all of these businesses, he founded "Fiam Italia," the first company capable of producing curved glass furniture items, with which the world's most renowned designers work closely. Giorgetto Giugiaro, Enzo Mari, Philippe Starck, Ron Arad, Cini Boeri, Vico Magistretti, Makio Hasuike, Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas, Daniel Libeskind, Oscar Dante Benini, and many others are included in this group.
Fiam Italia, a global leader in its industry, sells pieces from its own collection in over 25 institutions around the world.
In 1988, he co-founded "Montegridolfo srl" with Massimo and Alberta Ferretti to restore the homonymous walled suburb from the seventh century b.c., which had fallen into disrepair.
In 1992, he purchased the crumbling Pesaro villa known as Villa Miralfiore, which dates back to the 1260s and served as a historical marker for the area via the noble families that lived there. The villa and its original Italian-style garden were restored to their former glory.
There is a museum dedicated to the glass works that he created in collaboration with artists like Gianni Colombo, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Enrico Baj, Walter Valentini Danny Lane, Umberto Mariani, Eugenio Carmi, Luigi Veronesi, Bruno Munari, Oscar Piattella, Vasco Bendini, and others in the "Villa Mirafiore."
