Gianluca Vidal was born in Venice on July 1, 1976. At the young age of 14 he started to work with glass at the Studio Vetreria DP, on the Island of Murano. Here he studied under the Glass Maestro Imperio Rossi. After two years he decided to move to the studio of Effetre International. As the youngest glass worker in the studio and under the tutelage of the masters at Effetre, Gianluca began to learn the most difficult glass techniques and his talent as a glass maker began to emerge. Gianluca has worked over the years with many of the most important Glass Maestros on Murano; men like Afro Celotto, Silvano Molin, Luciano Pavanello, Giancarlo Tagliapietra and Dino Vio.

is able to cause glossiness to dialogue with the opaqueness, smoothness with
roughness, the concave with the convex.
Vidal’s exceptional ability has made it possible for him to collaborate with
masters such as Pino Signoretto as well as with internationally renowned
