Fornace Orsoni is the last historic furnace in Venice that uses the same traits since 1888 to produce 24K gold leaf mosaics, colored gold and Venetian varnish. The Color Library, is a timeless environment that preserves more than 3,500 Venetian varnish of different tones from which was born the famous panel by Angelo Orsoni. Amazed by those colors, Antoni Gaudí, decided to use them in the construction of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. Orsoni is the only furnace that can produce the “Oro San Marco” for the restoration of the Basilica.
