VENETIAN BRICCOLA WOOD
Precious oak poles immersed in sea waters for a long time. They are perforated by shipworms, small mollusks that sculpt the wood creating unrepeatable embroideries. After about ten years, the removal and replacement of these poles is ordered by the responsible of the lagoon’s protection, the Magistrate of Venice Waters.
BRICALE™ recovers and enhances the disused lagoon wooden poles, assuring them a new life. And their life is really new.
