The ferro family, glassworks by tradition

700 years of history​

After the terrible plague of 1630 that decimated the local population, including the skilled glass blowers, being nomads but always connected to their roots, the Ferro family moved to Murano and soon found themselves numbered among the local notables as Members for the island in the Council of the Republic of Venice, occupying this prestigious position as many as 27 times during the eighteenth century.

Belonging to the energetic and productive local elite, the Ferro family became Gastaldi Maggiori of the School San Nicolòs that included master glaziers and glassworks managers.

In addition, their coat of arms appeared on Oselle twice, medals used as money that the Venetian Mint coined specifically to commemorate the Murano Community.

As if to represent their dual nature, the Ferro family’s coat of arms is composed of an anchor – a symbol of stability and links with the land – and a comet, an indispensabile tool for travel and adventures by sea.

The Ferro Florian line of the family originates from Leonardo Ferro, a skilled teacher and famous lassmakers of the late nineteenth century, who have been numerous and fruitful up to the present day with glassware that carries their names.

Their numbers include Francesco, called El vecio A, who after wandering through Italy and opening furnaces in Venice to produce enamels for perler beads and rod, together with his children opened a glass blowing furnace and a store for selling artistic glass in Murano.


The “Ferro” furnaces founded in Murano by the masters are still active today, and after initial experience with the firm LAG – Drops craftsmanship established in 1963, Guido Ferro along with parents and brothers Ivan and Mario set up a new company in 1966 – the Effetre – a branch dealing in art glass and chandeliers.

But the turning point came in 1969 through an inspired idea and substantial investment when Effetre began producing glass discs and cylinders of various sizes and colors to be used as components in chandeliers.

The company is now an established recognized brand name among Murano producers and is synonymous with quality and a guaranteed authenticity for every part of the product.

In fact, it has a concession for the Artistic Glass Murano® trade mark of origin that certifies products in glass made on the island of Murano, introduced and regulated by Region of Veneto Law no.70 of the 23/12/1994, and Yalos Murano srl products are easily recognized by their serial number of 007 that they bear on this trade mark.

Yalos Murano  Development concentrates on new ideas that it examines in technological studies on building techniques in order to develop structural projects using Murano glass plates in for example the design of futuristic buildings.
Yalos Murano uses and studies and experiments in order to create elements with technological deployments of new conception, using the laboratories of research and glass technology directed by Commendator Guido Ferro and his son Diego Ferro.

The complete expression of the Yalos Murano offer is seen in the backlighting and diffusion of light in the design and manufacture of extremely expressive furnishings and design objects.

Talking of the Ferro family in Murano means talking about the island’s history of glass in the same breath.

Tracing events also means going back about 700 years during which the salient facts of unique and never ending art and industry take shape with the passing of every year.

Mobile and adventurous by nature, the Family Ferro has travelled and exported the art of glass making so much so that the Republic of Venice’s Council of Ten recalled a certain Bernardin Ferro for going abroad and taking with him the skills and expertise jealously guarded by the Serenissima Republic of Venice.

People who are now glassworks owners or glass masters, including beyond the Alps, with slight variations on the name – Ferry, de Ferre, or Ferrier – depending on the place of settlement, can always be traced back to that of Ferro – gentils hommes glaziers – in Murano.
