Davide Salvadore was born in Murano in 1953 to a family with a heritage of glassmaking. In 1978 he began producing lamp-worked beads in his mother, Anna Mantoan's, jewelry studios; this would lead to a series of collaborations with fashion and design houses such as Roberta di Camerino, Yves St. Laurent, Christian Dior, and Swatch.
In 1987 he founded the studio "Campagnol e Salvadore" which he manages today with two other partners. Within the studio, Davide worked as a glassmaster, mixing lampwork and furnace techniques in new ways. Davide has also worked for prestigious glasshouses on Murano and collaborated with designers and artists such as Andrea Anastasio, Giorgio Vigna, Florys Meydam, Frank Borst and Massimo Nordio.
Davide Salvadore is also a founding member of the "Centro Studio Vetro" of Murano, a non-profit cultural organization founded in 1997 to cultivate and promote, in Italy and abroad, the culture and art of glass.
