Apprenticeship in "F3 International" art glass. "First master" glassmaker in the "La Murrina" international glass factory, specialized in two of the oldest tecniques: filigrana and murrina. When Lino Tagliapietra left "F3 International" to open his own studio, Afro was asked to replace him and so he began first master in F3. After a co-operation with other factories and workshops, in 1999 Afro has opened his own art studio with the younger talents GC. Tagliapietra and L. Vidal. Afro masters the most difficult tecniques, incalmo, filigrana, reticello, murrina, cold work, but, opening his studio, he has moved beyond excellence in execution and now finally feels free to devote his focus to his artistic expression and unique works. Afro has the priviledge of an important artistic relationship with Pino Signoretto, generally considered the greatest master for heavy glass sculptures in Murano Island and member of Dale Chihuly's team. During his creative experience Afro and his team have cooperated with several international artists and their artworks were exhibited in art galleries, museums and exhibitions all over the world.
