Production of the ‘Veronese’ fabric, which proposes both the technique and the design of a mid-17th century sample, began in 1915 ca. From the 17th-century model, taken from Paolo Veronese’s painting of Justice in Palazzo Ducale in Venice, Lisio faithfully transcribed both the compositive layout and the larger and smaller elements, placed on the diagonal to lend movement to the pattern. The changes made were enlargement of the ratio of the design, delineating the motifs only with brocading in two types of gold and silver, and use floats of the ground weft and a lancé effect in substitution of the lamella that covered the ground and produced plays of light with to obtain a very successful iridescent effect.
