The Seguso family has been making glass in Murano, Italy since 1397, when Angelo Seguso first started. He passed on his knowledge to his son, Francesco, and the tradition has continued to the present day. Today the prestigious Seguso glass-crafting family has a Brazilian branch. In 1954, Mario Seguso was invited to execute special commemorative pieces for the 400th anniversary of the city of São Paulo. Enchanted by Brazil, he decided to settle there and establish a branch of the famous art glass. This book is devoted to the work of Mario, especially that done in Brazil.
