Cesendello Glass Wall Sconce. A Cesendello, or sanctuary lamp, has its roots in Rome and Byzantium, and later became popular in Venice and the Muslim world. The profile of this elegant spiral structure recalls the twist of a turban. The refined silhouette represents the synthesis of the Oriental and Renaissance themes present in Venice as early as the 15th century. This Fortuny Cesendello glass lamp can be wall or ceiling mounted.
In the glass range of the Fortuny lamps, Venetia Studium continues the centuries-old tradition of the Venetian master glass blowers, while retaining the elegance and originality of the shapes found in the silk version. The brilliance and transparency of the glass enhance the delicate gold decoration, made even more precious by the burnished metal of the decorative metal ring.
Venetia Studium has creatively embodied Fortuny’s affection in the multi-culture aspects. Enjoying the Venetia Studium’s lighting objects one can experience the fusion of culture sensitively carried by Fortuny, there are Spanish, Persian, Islamic, classical Greek, Renaissance and the great Venetian Art of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Among all, the strongest influences from the western culture are Spanish, as Mariano Fortuny was born in Granada, the ancient Moorish Capital of Spain; and Italian, as he resided in Venice since 1889 until his Fortuny’s blood as a Spanish origin. While Arabic was the strongest non-Western culture to him.
