Elisa Evangelisti

Amourrina beads are made using historic techniques that are unique to murano.
we believe that keeping these practices alive is essential to preserving murano’s cultural heritage and protecting its local skills.
Culture informs our very being and shapes our identity. making culture central to policies is the only way to ensure that development is human–centered, inclusive and equitable. Cultural heritage, both physical and intellectual, and creativity are resources that must be protected and promoted with the utmost attention and respect.

Founder and creative director at forte forte

Giada Forte

I love glass, it is a material that fascinates me and has always been a part of my life. It is a material that has great strength and yet, at the same time, it is fragile and delicate, both masculine and feminine. Glass can give color a vibrant appearance, while also imbuing it with a precious and sophisticated transparency.

It has always inspired forte_forte’s collections because it is part of my childhood: my mother always loved murano glassware and antique glass and she has handed this passion on to me. i vividly recall winter sundays spent with her as a child, browsing for glass in the antique markets and secret corners of Venice and Murano.
