A green, matrix-like structure that implies that Venice has been made by glass.

“Il Vetro Veneziano” is Italian for “Venetian Glass”. There is a duality to this name, both that Venice is world-renowned for its beautiful, glass-like canals and blown glass. Portraying Venice in an almost matrix-like green with a playful incorporation of verticals brings to mind the effect that occurs when one looks through many pieces of glass. This is as if to say that Venice has been made by glass, an irony considering the city’s obvious ability to stand the test of time.
