Barbini, born in 1912, began his long career in 1925 at the age of 13, working in the S. In 1929 he joined Cristalleria di Venezia e Murano as a master glassblower.
From 1936 to 1944 he was a partner and master glassblower at Societa Anonima Vetri Artistici Murano. Following World War II Barbini worked as master glassblower and designer successively with Archimede Seguso and Napoleone Martinuzzi, then became a partner with Vetreria Vistosi. With financial assistance from the firm of Salviati & C.For whom he produced products, he formed in 1950 his own glass firm, Vetreria Alfredo Barbini. He died in 2007 at the age of 95.
