The Church of Santa Maria Assunta, Island of Torcello, Venetian Lagoon

Torcello is a place of worship and highly spiritual, the Church of Santa Maria Assunta is located on the Island of Torcello and is one of the oldest settlements in the Venetian lagoon and it is the cradle of Venice itself. The origins of this ancient church can be dated back to the 7th century after being expanded for the first time in 826 A.D. and rebuilt in 1008, when it was finally consecrated to Santa Maria Assunta. The Torcello Basilica anticipates some of the characteristics that were fully developed at a later stage inside the best known building in Venice – St Mark’s Cathedral. The Island of Torcello enjoyed a period of splendour and became one of the major centres in the lagoon until the arrival of the plague and expanding swamps forced its inhabitants to flee to the city of Venice. Santa Maria Assunta retained its function as a cathedral until 1818, when it was downgraded to a parish church under the Venice Patriarch. Today the Churches soaring bell tower can be seen from a great distance across the Venetian lagoon, lying in untouched nature and a tranquil atmosphere looking almost surreal.

Our images are printed using premium K3 print technology on Hahnemühle Fine Art Torchon matt photographic paper. The special feature of the light white paper (285 g/m²) is its material: 100% alpha-cellulose defines the characteristically coarse texture. It gives your image a timeless, true-to-the-original charisma with a 3D effect. 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.
