The Italian Seguso family is one of the most esteemed, historical and respected glass manufacturing families, originating from the island of Murano, Italy. In 1954, Mario Seguso, a descendant and at the time still living in Italy, was invited to Brazil by Cristais Prado, a renowned glass engraving studio. Mario was enchanted by Brazil and decided to stay to produce glassware following his family’s glass making tradition for the Brazilian market. He founded a glass art studio in Poços de Caldas and named it Cá d’Oro, which can be translated into golden house. Over the decades, Cá d’Oro had grown exponentially and in the 1990’s, Mario Seguso passed along the management to his son Adriano. Cá d’Oro is to this day led by Adriano Seguso, and since a couple of years, his sons Rodrigo and Guilherme are involved in the family business as well, carrying on the centuries-old tradition.
