The ‘Duomo’ design presents an elegant motif from the mid-18th century taken from a church parament conserved at the Florence cathedral. Giuseppe Lisio, who set this design up on the loom for the first time in about 1920, possessed such a piece in his collection of ancient exemplars from which he drew many of his designs. As in the original, the fabric is especially rich, due to inclusion of numerous precious threads in gold and silver.
What most immediately strikes the eye is the novel arrangement of the floral motifs in the fields, delineated by strips, and the rich and meticulous workmanship which only increases the value of a refined and already beautiful fabric.
