Venetian Briccola Wood:
The Venetian lagoon was very early a major crossroads of commercial land, river and sea routes, junction of communications and routes between East and Northern Europe. The briccole since then were used by sailors to orient themselves and to get some information of that difficult stretch of sea, such as the depth of the seabed and the alternation of the tides. Still these lagoon poles are essential for the regulation of navigation and act as a real road system, indicating routes and navigable canals, as well as being used for mooring.
The origin of the name "Briccole" is uncertain, but it seems that it derives from the breeze (wind), and it is the wind, together with the primordial cycles of water and earth, that determines the role of the tides and the mixing of fresh and salt water and to make this heritage unique in the world.
The briccole are composed of two or more piles, mainly of European oak, tied together and immersed in the lagoon for part of their length, where they remain for years, after which they must be replaced to prevent them from breaking, becoming a danger for naval traffic.
Of these poles, even if numbered, the exact number is not known, it is estimated that they can be between 60,000 and 90,000 units. What is certain is that they are one of the distinctive elements of Venice, through which not only an objective geographical image is consolidated, but also a shared heritage of cultural meanings and representations.
It is no exaggeration to say that each briccola has an autonomous voice, each briccola has its own story to tell, of this place that seems not yet been manipulated by man, narrated by myths and legends.
The history of the company that created this article originates in a small artisan shop , where the art of carpentry was cultivated with dedication, and then handed down from father to son. The memories of those distant days bring to mind the sounds and scents of that workshop, where experience has been formed in the effort of daily work and that passion that still today inspires its work has developed.
To carry out its work as best as possible and guarantee products of unrivaled quality , the company cultivates the values of the past: a careful selection of recovered woods, a meticulous care of the workmanship, an eye to authenticity. But the preservation of traditions and values are accompanied by a work of continuous research, new materials and design solutions able to project the ancient beauty of the woods in a future with solid roots. The furnishing solutions proposed bring together innovation and tradition , creating a game of temporal references capable of enhancing at the same time the charm of the woods of recovery and the refined modernity of raw materials with high technological content.
This is the magic formula of what is called " craftsmanship ": a daily work based on a profound competence, on skills acquired over long years of apprenticeship and refinement, but at the same time a work in continuous development, made of research and innovation. The recovery of old wood allows to breathe new life into materials otherwise destined for pulp, to bring to light a hidden beauty that would be lost.
Antique wood has a timeless appeal that must be safeguarded.
