ABSTRACT
The article discusses the renaissance of Venetian textile arts experienced during the late 19th and early 20th century as a result of innovative technical knowledge and an exceptional tradition of talented weavers in Venice, Italy. The rebirth of interest in Venetian textile products is traced through an economic, social, and artistic framework. Particular attention is paid to the figurative sources and stylistic trends that influenced the textile artisans of the period. The recovery of ancient and complex textile techniques for the production of "soprarizzi," a traditional Venetian fabric, by mill owner Giovan Battista Trapolin is mentioned. The reinterpretation of a traditional pattern called "griccia" is discussed.
