The Venetian company has moved its showroom and historical archives to Ca’ Pisani Rubelli, a family property since the late 1800s.
Almost 130 years after its founding, Rubelli returns home, to Ca’ Pisani Rubelli, now containing its showroom in Venice and the historical archives of the firm.
A return to origins, to a house that has belonged to the family since the late 1800s. Since then five generations have worked on the production of the company’s famous fabrics.
Ca’ Pisani Rubelli, a fine specimen of Venetian Gothic from the late 1300s, is located in the Contrada di San Samuele.
After renovation and restoration work in multiple phases, conserving the original image, the ground and first floors now contain a store and a showroom, while the upper level is set aside for the historical archives and several elegant settings decorated with the furnishing and accessory collections of Donghia and Rubelli Casa.
The architects Leo Schubert and Verdiana Durand de la Penne have reinterpreted the original spaces, creating new ones through specific interventions dictated by requirements of technical systems and regulations, without ever losing sight of the aesthetic aspects and details.
On the upper level, open by appointment, visitors can consult the Rubelli historical archives, containing about 7000 textile and paper documents.
