The Modena Collection
North of Bologna, Modena, the former capital of the Duchy of Este and current capital of the eponymous province, is a city that offers an explosive mix of artistic and cultural heritage and modern history. There are many exceptional historic buildings there, the second oldest university in Italy, the University of Modena was founded in 1175. Modena is also a hotbed of the Italian automobile industry. The city of Emilia-Romagna was also the cradle of the most excellent Italian manufacturers (Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Maserati, the three most famous). The Modena Collection embraces transitional style chandeliers that are spherical and reminiscent of the vintage kind. Each chandelier is accented with brass and finished with a coat of bronze to help shower attention to its exposed bulbs.
