Cheers to your love! This year, celebrate the ones you love with Amedeo’s glassware of Verona. Valentine’s Day is about more than just the romantic love between you and your sweetheart – it extends to the unconditional love you have for your family and friends. Our artisan Amedeo values the importance of family with his passion for crafting glassware that he passed down to his two sons, Valentino and Roberto. After graduating from art school, Amedeo founded his glass workshop in Verona, Italy. From the time his sons Valentino and Roberto were old enough to hold a paint brush, they have worked alongside their father, becoming expert craftsmen and artisans in their own rights. Today, the three transform ordinary glass into luminous works of art, one at a time.
Celebrate the ones you hold near and dear to your heart with hand crafted wine and champagne glasses, or display your everlasting love in a one-of-kind hand-gilded picture frame that is sure to capture moments worth remembering.
This Valentine’s Day, fill your glasses with the perfect drink to match the occasion. Whether it is a romantic date with your sweetheart or a family celebration, Amedeo’s glasses hold the perfect cocktails (and mocktails!).
