Mario undertook the training course of artistic study at the State Institute of Art in Venice, then continued at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice from where he comes out with honors.
At the Academy he had the opportunity to attend the lessons of important artists such as: Emilio Vedova, Fabrizio Plessi, Ennio Chiggio, Carmelo Zotti, Ennio Finzi, Vittorio Basaglia, from whom he drew important teachings.
The charm of glass and the furnace has always remained in his heart, so already in 1987, he entered his father's forge to actively collaborate in the realization of the works, alongside Walter and thus gradually learning how to work with artistic glass.
Initially he dedicated himself to the cold working of sculptures, taking care of their finishing and assembly, then he learned the rudiments of hot glass working with great dedication.
In his works, Mario is always striving to discover new manufacturing techniques which, however, do not distort the true essence of Murano glass and do not distort the ancient knowledge handed down from generation to generation.
