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 Italy the fine art of glassmaking. This exquisite goblet, made circa 1880, shows why Salviati became responsible for reviving Murano’s status as the center for artistic glass throughout Europe.
