Vase in pulegoso glass with applications at the side and foot, iridised surface
At first, Carlo Scarpa used also the pulegoso glass developed by Napoleone Martinuzzi, occasionally giving an iridescence to the surface. Combining the purely geometric forms preferred by the architect with the plasticity of pulegoso glass heightened the Novecento style that characterized the applied arts and architecture of the day.
