The Roosters of Ulderico
Giusy brings the murrine
of the father Ulderico Moretti (1892-1956) to contemporaneity
“Because the autonomy of the island of Murano must always be preserved”
Ulderico Moretti (1892-1956)
The fact that the artistic murrine, over and above the firm’s output (Luigi Moretti, together with his father and his brothers Vittorio and Cesare, founded”Moretti Luigi & Bros.” in 1900), are a real family passion, also becomes clear with Ulderico (1892-1956) who, after the Municipality of Murano was annexed to that of Venice (on 31 December 1923), demonstrated his dissent as an artist (he successfully took part – winning prizes – in several Biennali between the ’20’s and ’30’s) by immortalizing the island’s symbol – the cockeral – within a series of murrine which he even set in the Venetian-style floor of his house.
