- Paulo Venini (1895-1959), a Milanese lawyer, and Giacomo Cappellin (1887-1968), a Venetian antique dealer, founded the Vetri Soffiati Muranese Cappellin-Venini & Co in 1921. Cappellin left the company to set up a new firm, Maestri Vetrai Muranesi - Cappellin e Co, in 1925. It closed in 1931, and in 1933 the trademark and models were bought by Gaetano Ceschina, owner of the retailers Pauly & Co. and Compagnia di Venezia e Murano. In the late 1930s, Cappellin moved to Paris. After the split with Cappellin, Venini set up his own firm, Vetri Soffiati Muranesi Venini & Co., for which he was also a designer. Venini & Co. is still active.
