During the late 19th century, the Italian Risorgimento consolidated the peninsula’s disparate city states and formed the country of Italy that we know today. In order to deploy a shared national history and a common language upon which a united nation could emerge, artists systematically looked back to the ages that created the Italian ethos and made it a great nation: Ancient Rome and Renaissance Italy. Antonio Salviati engaged in this shared Italian culture by bringing back to Venice the fine art of glassmaking. This Salviati glass vase, made circa 1880, displays exceptional mastery of the 15th-century Venetian techniques calcedonio and avventurina to create smelze glass.
