The traditional country houses of the Venetian nobility were the “Ville Venete”, whose most brilliant architect was undoubtedly Andrea Palladio. Under a porch or hidden in the corner of a garden you can find names and short sonnets engraved on memorial stones and columns. Many of them enshrine collections of ancient headstones with a great variety of engravings: a really inspiring find! Is there something more traditional than an engraved marble plate? At Studio Vertu Europe we can engrave on marble or on slate any desire: a sign that will last forever.
