Description

The color pink in Venice is the color of Venetian painter Gianbattista Tiepolo’s clouds and sunsets on the Lagoon. Tiepolo represents a breath of happiness in Europe. And, like all true happiness, full of dark sides, not destined to disappear, rather to take over.

Like the city of Venice to which the Gondola glass belongs. As its name, symbol par excellence of the city, tells.

The uniqueness of this glass lies in the technique used to make it: incalmo.
A technique of combining different colors of glass welded together by heat so as to create a single blown piece with distinct colors. Only certain colors can be joined with this technique, as each color has its own cooling characteristics, which, of course, must be compatible, otherwise the different tensions would end up breaking.

And it is precisely the difficulty of this technique that determines the beauty of this special glass.

The Designer

The life of Giberto Arrivabene Valenti Gonzaga is viscerally linked to Venice. His childhood memories, the most beautiful, are those that have taken place in the rooms of Palazzo Papadopoli, between frescoes of Tiepolo and family affection. “In my earliest memories Venice had other colours. It was more obscure, dramatic, decayed and deeply romantic – simply beautiful. There wasn’t the same light like there is today – more dazzling perhaps, but less poetic.”

Craftmanship

Each piece derives from a watercolour sketch made by Giberto on tracing paper: “When I see something that inspires me, or an object that I like, I sketch and rework it – then move on to the realization of it.”

The glass, the main material in the collections, is worked exclusively in Murano. Each glass, each specific object, is blown by master glassmakers in the Venetian furnaces.
