Concept

The briccole are as much a part of our image of Venice as the water of the lagoon. Indeed, here three strange white wooden posts protrude from the water, leaning one against the other as they have done for nearly five hundred years, to signal to Venetians where their boats can safely travel. Their function is indispensable. But it took the observant eye of Riva 1920 to notice that the material of which they are made might be suitable for re-use.
The theme of the re-use of the briccole suggested by the Riva brothers to the designers is certainly a fascinating one.
I would like to make a modest proposal for a briccola with coloured glass.
