Cesare was born in Murano in 1961, and grew up in a family of top Glass Artists. His Grandfather Giacomo, was a Master Glass Blower in the Venini Furnace. He taught his son Florino (Cesare' father) the techniques that made him also a Master Glass Blower at Venini by the age of 17. Florino then specialized in flameworking, getting the acceptance of the most traditional people of Murano. Cesare often visited his father's studio, and learned flameworking at 15. He lost his father two years later, but continued perfecting the technique on his own. He reached the same credibility that Florino enjoyed in Murano. In addition, Cesare developed many flameworking techniques never tried before. Some of these are the Filigree, Incalmo and the use of Gold leaf. He collaborated with the most prestigious glass establishments in Murano and Abroad, and was 21 when he exhibited at the Palazzo Ca' Vendramin Calergi in Venice. At the age of 30, Cesare was invited to teach at the Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle. This was followed by other courses there, and at the Niijima Glass Art Center in Tokyo, at the Studio of Corning Museum of Glass in Corning NY, at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina, at the Toyama Glass Art Institute and at Kanazu Forest Of Creation Foundation in Japan.

He's been invited to demonstrate his lampworking skills in Tokyo at the Glass Art Institute and at the Glass House Institute, and at the Symposium European of Glass in France. Museums, Galleries, and Collectors prize his work worldwide. Cesare is one of the top Glass Artists in Murano, and his work is listed in pubblications that track down the value of High End Art in Italy. He was the conceiver and the founder of CENTRO STUDIO VETRO, a non-profit cultural association, born in Murano in 1997, that promoted Glass Art in Italy and Abroad from that date to 2003. He was also the conceiver of Vetro Magazine published by Centro Studio Vetro. From 2001 to 2003 he coordinated the Glass Workshops in Venice, in S. Servolo Island as Artistic Director.
