Venetia Studium creatively embodied Fortuny’s multi-cultural aspects. Thanks to their lighting designs everyone can experience the union of cultures and aesthetics: there are Spanish, Persian, Islamic, classical Greek, Renaissance and the great Venetian Art of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, influences hidden in each precious piece.
Among all, the strongest influences from the western culture are Spanish, as Fortuny was born in Granada, the ancient Moorish Capital of Spain; and Italian, as his home was in Venice since 1889. Arabic was the strongest non-Western culture to him.
The mesmerizing details of these lighting designs prove that makers put their heart and soul into everything their hands create, with supreme attention to every single piece and only using high quality materials.
