Briccole*, a piece of the Finds collection, is a Venetian mirror fished in a canal.
The shape of the sumptuous and shimmering mirrors that enriched the palaces on the Grand Canal have been reinterpreted in the form of relics.
The corroded wood of the lagoon’s briccole transformed by time frame the reflective surfaces of handmade mirrors.
The top moulding houses a fragment of the winged lion with the famous inscription that faces San Marco engraved on glass.
Everything is assembled with bronze pins that embellish the craftsmanship.

*A Briccola (plural briccole) is made up of three wooden posts driven into the lagoon-bed used to mark the lagoon’s navigable canals.
