The mosaics of San Marco in the furnishing accessories of VDA Borella

Arianne is a happy encounter between the traditional venetian glass art and floral art; it is an artistic creation that in its shape and decorations holds the essence of VDA Borella: the Riviera del Brenta, world excellence in the footwear industry, and Venice, of which Arianne celebrates one of its most famous symbols with its handcrafted decorations, the Saint Mark’s basilica.

Gold, multicoloured enamels, bright, lively and vibrant colours decorate the court shoe. Work of the skilled hands of our master decorators, the handcrafted decorations of this furnishing accessory are are freely inspired by the magnificence of the Byzantine mosaics that decorate the basilica of Saint Mark, the spiritual center of the city.


The Basilica of Saint Mark was built starting from the IX century, after the transfer of the Saint’s body from Alexandria to Venice. It was chosen to build it next to the Palazzo Ducale, seat of the government of the Republic, to replace the previous chapel of San Teodoro. The church suffered several fires before reaching its present form, which was begun in 1071, under the governement of Domenico Selvo. The new basilica with its Byzantine architectural conception has its focal point in its mosaic decorations.

The mosaics of Saint Mark, in warm colors, with a clear predominance of gold, almost entirely cover the basilica, for over 8000 square meters; with them, the most significant stories for the Christian religion are illustrated, such as the life of Christ, of the Virgin and of Saint Mark. These mosaics are a splendid example of the revisitation of Greek-Byzantine art by Venice but also testimony to the history and faith of the city.

Precious as Venetian glass art, the mosaic art of Saint Mark is still a source of wonder and admiration: in visiting the basilica it is impossible not to be amazed.


Venice is, for VDA Borella, an infinite inspiration to forge and decorate all its creations. From the fantastic geometry of the bridges to the sumptuous facades of the buildings, up to the golden splendours of the mosaics of Saint Mark, every corner and glimpse of Venice is unforgettable. In the lagoon city, contemporaneity and tradition meet in the eternity of art. Thus, with a piece of furniture that is both tradition and modernity, VDA Borella wanted to honor one of the most important symbols of its city.

According to some traditions, the first glasses originated from the waste in the metal casting processes. To date, artistic glass is a symbol of the city of Venice thanks to the wonderful first-choice materials. Our glass masters show great growth and variation of glass processing procedures, thus arriving at a type of innovative design and unmistakable purity.

The glass of our foundries undergoes an elaborate manufacturing process, resulting from the mixing and transformation of raw materials. These are then joined by consolidants and dyes to be dissolved in the oven and then moved on to modeling the glass.

Tumblers as stabilised roses party favours

The history of Murano glass tumblers has its roots in the life of the ancient glassmasters: the goti de fornase (“tumblers of the furnace” in venetian dialect) were crafted and used to drink by masters during the hard work in the furnace. The goti were modeled with hot vitreous paste, without paying attention to the perfection of the form. Today these irregular shaped creations are considered precious objects, very popular and sought after all over the world.

VDA Borella’s tumblers reinterpret the venetian tradition of goti de fornase by merging Murano glass charm with a beautiful arrangement of stabilised roses. This is how Goti Acquavita and Goti Aseo were born.

Goti Acquavita and Goti Aseo

Goti Acquavita are handmade by our masters, in the respect of the traditional craftsmanship of goti de fornase, with murrine millefiori, silver and polychrome canes poured on the inside. The floral decoration, a work of our florists, turns them into stabilised roses party favours: the lively beauty of these goti is perfect for weddings or special events that you want to remember forever.

Goti Aseo are characterised by a regular shape and the pastel shades of blue, green, white and red, recalled by the composition of roses. For these goti, the masters used the incalmo technique – the same of ca’ Rizzi vase – which consists of the combination of glasses of different colours welded together while hot. Goti Aseo are mostly chosen to decorate table during special events.

Murrine, an ancient technique with magical colors.

Murano glass vases crafted with Murrine technique are some of the finest in the world. Coloured, lively, eye-catching, these artistic creations are the result of long and complicated work by skilled master glassmakers, keepers of an ancient knowledge handed down from one generation to the next from the earliest times.

What is the story of this ancient art?

The Murrine technique seems to be originally from Alexandria (I a.C- I d.C.). It is said that, in 61 b.C, Pompeo was in the possession of some murrino glass vases from the aegyptian city, known as “murrha”. However, the origin of this art goes back to Phoenician craftsmenship: with geometric pattern glass rods the phoenician masters molded the vases, intended for the preserving of perfumes such as myrrh, from which those vases took their name.

The ancient art of murrino vases fell into disuse during the Middle Ages. However in the XV century, the unparalleled master glassmakers in Murano rediscovered and revisited it by introducing the custom of melt sections of canna rosetta, characterised by concentric glass layers of different colours. The technique was then refined and revived in the second half of the nineteenth century, when, during the most difficult period in their history, master glassmakers decided to overcome the crisis by reviving this ancient adapting it to the fashion of the times.

The ancient technique consisted in laying small glass pieces of various colours and shapes prepared beforehand on a slab when cold, following a certain design. These glass pieces were then gradually heated so as to obtained a multicoloured mosaic. The novelty introduced by the nineteenth-century masters was the millefiori rods, made of concentric glass layers of various colours crafted together with a star-shaped or flower-shaped mould. When it had cooled down, the rod was cut into cylindrical segments, i.e. the Murrine, which were then added to the glassmaking process.

The resumed technique is still today considered one of the most beautiful and complex in the venetian glass art, capable of giving birth to extraordinary artworks.

With the same techniques, master glassmakers by VDA Borella crafted some of the most beloved works among our collections, such as Torete vase and Abazia goblet. Their lively colours are enhanced by the shades of stabilised roses compositions, from the gaudiest to the softest, according to the required effect.
