The Julia glass is different from the traditional shapes blown in Murano: “I wanted to create a rounded glass, unusual for Murano, but blown with the ancient rigà-menà technique that multiplies the undertones of the grey glass and makes it extremely pleasurable to the touch”.

The Julia glass is finished with a thin rim of ruby glass that is hot sealed and is completed by a drop of hot glass that slides down the surface “as if it was a tear on one’s cheek”, until it solidifies in an always unique shape.

In this size that was imagined particularly for wine, the Julia is easy to handle and is perfect to let a good red wine breathe.

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.”


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.

Giberto takes his watercolours to discuss with them and refine the project, check its feasibility, and to make eventual changes.
