The astonishing bridge
Rialto Family Line
Rialto in the heart of Venice reminds us to the sinuous curves of its bridge
The family line Rialto takes its name by the famous ancient area of Venice. In this well known place people used to meet because of the most famous market of the Serenissima placed next to one of the four main bridges of the Grand Canal: the Rialto Bridge. And the gentle curves of the iconic Rialto Bridge inspired Arte Veneziana to name one of its mirror family line Rialto. This group is marked of a typical squared shape enriched with a signature crest on the top.

The most important value
The Iustitia mirror from the Venetia Collection is one of the symbols of Arte Veneziana.
This kind of mirror was born in Murano and uses the engraving technique together with the lightness of the crystal roses decoration. Originally the nobles preferred to affix the coat of arms to the crest to symbolize the power of the family.
The name Iustitia derives from the incision on the upper part of the mirror, the crest, which depicts the mythological figure of Iustitia holding a scale in one hand and the sword in the other.
