Countess Marie Brandolini d'Adda di Valmareno (née Angliviel de la Beaumelle; 7 April 1963 - 30 May 2013) was a French-Italian glass maker.

Early life and family[edit]

Marie Angliviel de la Beaumelle was born on April 7, 1963 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Hauts-de-Seine.[1] Her father was Armand Angliviel de la Beaumelle, a member of a prominent haute bourgeois family from Languedoc,[1] and her mother was Baroness Béatrice Juliette Ruth de Rothschild, a member of the aristocratic Rothschild family.[2] Her maternal grandfather was Baron Alain de Rothschild. On her father's side she is a distant relation to Laurent Angliviel de la Beaumelle. Her parents later divorced and her mother remarried Pierre Rosenberg in 1981.[3]

Adult life[edit]

She married Count Brandolino Brandolini d'Adda, the son of Brandolino Brandolini d'Adda, Conte di Valmareno and Cristiana Agnelli, in November 1987 in Paris.[4] The couple had three sons: Guido, Marcantonio, and Gioacchino.[5] They resided in the Palazzo Brandolini on the Grand Canal in Venice and at Vistorta, a family estate in Friuli.[4]

Angliviel de la Beaumelle worked as a contemporary glass designer in Venice, founding the company Laguna B in 1996.[6][7][4][8][9] She also served as the president of the French Alliance of Venice, which promoted French culture in Italy.[10] She was also a patron of the Murano Glass Museum and the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia.[10]


She died, after battling cancer, on 30 May 2013.[11][12][13] She was given a Catholic funeral at the Church of the Transfiguration of Jesus in Vistorta.[14][15] After her death, the Mayor of Venice, Giorgio Orsoni, offered his condolences to the Brandolini d'Adda family and referred to Angliviel de la Beaumelle as "a friend of Venice, a tireless animator of the cultural and artistic life of the Lagoon."[16] Upon her death, her son Marcantonio took over the company Laguna B.[17]
