To symbolise the marriage of Venice to the sea, the Doge of Venice drops a gold ring into the Grand Canal. This is the scene depicted here in one of Canaletto’s finest paintings. The annual festival, which has taken place for more than 1000 years, symbolises Venice’s dominance of the seas during this period in history.
Canaletto's painting works beautifully on a pocket square due to its contrasting areas of colour and detail. By experimenting with different folds, its very simple to pair with numerous outfits. We particularly like the puff fold and the more flamboyant double-point roll paired with a summer suit.
