To Murano glass frame I picked the name  "Patrizi antique ", the name of the Venetian nobility, one is the name of Barbarigo. There is always the shadow of mystery behind a masterpiece made by the experience of centuries of tradition, and that, that is the appeal.

The family Barbarigo originating from the region of Istrian (according to traditions, their ancestral place is Muggia, near Trieste). Also, according to the Family legend, in the year 880 AD, Arrigo won a battle against the Saracens and pirates home victory with beard ("barba " Italy) from enemies defeated, so it comes from the family name-Barbarigo-and the coat of arms, representing six of the beards.

The family remained the part of patricians of Venice after Scutellaria Serrata del Maggior Consiglio in 1297. Two members of the family become a dogi Venice. The first, Marco, to rule the Republic in 1485-1486 and was the first Doge to be crowned at the giant staircase Palazzo Ducale.

It was he who introduced the custom of kissing the hands of the Doge's.
