The Leaning Bell Tower of the Church of St Martin's, Burano, Venetian Lagoon
The colours of the houses are a peculiarity that makes the island unique. The origin of the colours is unknown, they could be possibly related to a family name or, more likely, to help fishermen to find their way back to the island during the foggy days. Built in the seventeenth century, the leaning tower has a square shape and Renaissance and neoclassical architectural features. It has undergone several restorations over the centuries, especially in the upper part of the belfry. Among these maintenance works the most notable is the one carried out by the Tirali, which occurred between 1703 and 1714. The height of the Burano's tower is 53 meters and it stands on a base with a side of 6.20 meters. Because of land subsidence it is inclined of 1.83 meters respect to its axis.

The special feature of the light white paper (285 g/m²) is its material: 100% alpha-cellulose defines the characteristically coarse texture.

The hand-made style paper is highly water resistant and the use of premium K3 Epson prints ensures luminous colours and deep blacks for at least 100 years.
Textile print on stretcher frame – a fabric print using modern technology
Your image will be printed on fabric in razor-sharp quality and with brilliant colours and with its subtly textured surface; it transforms any photo into a unique gallery work that is full of life. During the thermal sublimation process, the colours are completely evaporated into the material. The resolution of up to 720 dpi and the enlarged CMYK colour spectrum allows accurate colour reproduction with clear contours. We only use textiles that are free of harmful substances and that have been awarded the internationally recognised Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. Your image is mounted on the solid wood stretcher frame in its true form using only, high quality stretcher frames made of solid wood. The spruce wood comes from German suppliers and is sourced from sustainable forests. To give the stretcher frames permanent protection from losing shape, we triple reinforce the corners under the textile print using metal braces. When mounting on the stretcher frame we avoid using wedges – the frame is so stable that you won't need to loosen or tighten it at a later stage and it will arrive ready to hang.
