The rich Venetian façades are a true showcase of history and mysticism, from the largest decorative elements to the tiniest details. In this respect, Cannaregio is a particularly special sestiere (neighborhood), often neglected by the superficial gaze of tourists. This collection finds inspiration in the neighborhood’s palaces, churches and bridges, merging an imagination populated by esotericism and classical mythology with floral and vegetable motifs, many of them recuperated from Vista Alegre’s esthetic heritage. A bold line, made of intense contrasts, which establishes a romantic relationship between the past and modernity.

- About Vista Alegre:
Founded in 1824, the Vista Alegre Porcelain Factory was the first industrial unit dedicated to producing porcelain in Portugal. Over its long history, the Vista Alegre brand, which has always been intimately associated with Portuguese history and culture, has achieved unparalleled recognition and visibility.
Public recognition, perceived quality and the company’s investment in innovation and design have turned Vista Alegre into one of the very few Portuguese luxury brands to achieve iconic status on a worldwide level.
Having adopted rigorousness, sophistication and versatility as its core values, Vista Alegre has been able to harmoniously combine tradition and modernity, and remain attuned to cultural trends. Vista Alegre products reflect the most recent design trends and are manufactured according to the highest quality and functionality standards. In addition to using state-of-the-art production techniques, the porcelain factory also employs 17 hand painters, who are responsible for decorating the pieces produced.
