Rosanna Toso started working in Fratelli Toso in 1964 as designer and she became artistic director in 1973; after Fratelli Toso division Rosanna kept on collaborating with Antica Vetreria Fratelli Toso run by her brother Arnoldo. Besides her collaboration with Fratelli Toso Rosanna founded GT Vetro Forniture and later Vesign with different partners: with these societies she mostly designed interior lighting lines.
Rosanna's designs are fresh and essential: she always preferred simple and linear shapes and patterns mostly using essential colours, such as crystal, black and white. Starting from Fratelli Toso traditional murrina she engaged in modernizing through different glass-making techniques to create new and modern murrina. Rosanna's interior lighting lines, following art-decò trend, well fitted with '80s artistic trends but those are still very appreciated nowadays.

55° Venice Biennale
In the occasion of the 55° Venice Biennale of Arts, we established a collaboration with the artist Rene Rietmeyer: he is responsible of some beautiful palaces in Venice which will host Biennale exhibitions in the next months. One of this palaces, Palazzo Mora, has been renovated in the last months after being abandoned for a very long time and it is now the location of the exhibition of Global Art Affairs Foundation (Chinese art foundation): in order to furnish this beautiful palace in the respect of his long history and to keep a connection with decorative tradition of Venice, Fratelli Toso together with other glass firms in Murano decided to give some ancient chandeliers on an extended loan. Two of our old chandeliers have been displayed until June 2014.
