Italian glassware has been revered throughout the world ever since the 16th century when the Venetian glassmakers of Murano developed an exceptionally transparent and colorless glass they called "crystalline". Murano, an island adjacent to Venice, is where the glassmakers were banished after their furnaces burned down the city. Nevertheless, their product was still known as Venetian glass. The crystalline glasses, bottles and vases of that era can still be seen today in the paintings by Paolo Veronese and Tintoretto.

The brilliance and clarity of the Venetians' crystalline glass was a result of the highly pure silica and potash they melted in their kilns. Ever since then, the term "crystal" has been used to denote glass of exceptional quality; highly transparent, sparkling and colorless. Some mistakenly believe that all crystal must contain lead. That's not true. The English, starting in the 17th century, added lead oxide to their glass mix to increase its refractive index in an effort to compete with the Venetian crystalline glass; in effect, adding an impurity to counter the effect of other impurities.

The glassmakers at Luigi Bormioli in Parma continue the long and proud Italian tradition of innovation in glassmaking. Their glass is blown, not molded, and they've devised some rather innovative methods of replicating by machine the appearance and utility of hand-made crystal, but priced for everyday use. In their premier Atelier collection of stemware they go even fiurther with the introduction of SON.hyx, their proprietary, new break-resistant crystal. Fine crystal stemware, engineered to survive the bumps and knocks of everyday life.
