Assouline, 2023

In the magical city of Venice, Casa Codognato was founded in 1866 by Simeone Codognato, in a bijou boutique just steps from the Piazza San Marco. As a dealer of art and antiquities, Simeone quickly established a signature aesthetic, conceiving the memento mori designs that have become immensely popular. The founder’s son, the first Attilio Codognato, introduced another important element: During a time of significant Etruscan archaeological discoveries, he incorporated ancient intaglios and cameos into the house’s jewels and objects. Codognato became one of the most original jewelers in Europe and a required stop for connoisseurs such as Gabrielle Chanel, Jean Cocteau and Diana Vreeland. This luxurious oversize volume showcases Codognato’s singular baroque jewels alongside evocative images of the ethereal city of Venice, an eternal source of inspiration for poets and artists for centuries.
