Alberto Dona was born in Italy in 1944. He began working in the glass field at age 13. He worked with many masters and had the opportunity to travel abroad to Venezuela to work with glass. His foremost influence was the maestro “Nane” Ferro, who was known in Murano during the 60s as one of the best masters.
Dona’s glass vessels have been included in various group shows. In October 2001 he had a one-man show at the Vassel Art Gallery in London. Also he was selected to furnish the lighting for the Hiroshima Memorial Museum.
