Arte Vetraria Muranese or AVEM (A.Ve.M.) for short, was founded in 1932 by several glassblowers - Antonio Luigi Ferro, his son Egidio Ferro, Emilio Nason and Galliano Ferro. Giulio Radi was technical director. Some early designs were created by the renowned painter Vittori Zecchin.

AVEM are probably best know today for their very popular and long running 'Bizantino' series, known more commonly by collectors as 'tutti-frutti', a range of ashtrays, bowls and vases that was introduced in 1953 by an unknown designer.
