Deep satin finish
This careful stylistic choice provides a more modern look to a design that aims to convey tradition and innovation at the same time. The deep satin finish is obtained through the use of special brushes by skilled craftsmen who finish each individual surface through a completely manual process. Several handmade steps are required to achieve a homogeneous result that passes the internal quality control process.

Built circa 1912 at the navy yard in Venice and was sunk in 1915 by the Austro-Hungarian submarine U-5 under the command of Georg Ritter von Trapp.
