Ercole Barovier was the son of Benvenuto Barovier. At the age of 30, he became a partner in his father's company, the Vetreria Artistica Barovier & C. After becoming its artistic director in 1926, he took over its management with his brother Nicol. He became the only director in 1936, fostering the fusion between his own glass workshop and the S.A.I.A.R. Ferro-Toso. In 1942, the new company was renamed Barovier & Toso. Over the course of his 50-year activity, he invented numerous decorative techniques that contributed significantly to the renovation of glass art.
