Vittorio Zecchin (Murano, 21 May 1878 – Murano, 15 April 1947) was an Italian artist.
From 1921 to 1925 he was the artistic director of the companyVetri Blown Muranesi Cappellin Venini & C., for which he creates classical pieces in light glass and with delicate colors; inspired by the 16th century pictorial style of Venetian painters, these vases were the first examples of modern works in Murano glass  . After the experience with Cappellin Venini, he continued, during the Thirties, to devote himself to the creation of very refined glass, collaborating with various glassworks  : Ferro-Toso (1930), A.Ve.M. Murano Glass Art (1932-1933)  , Salir (1932-1938), Barovier Seguso Ferro (1933-1934) and Fratelli Toso (1938).
