Orseola is a native-born Venetian – and Venetian royalty. She was raised in the antiques trade as her great grandfather was an antique dealer and collector of exquisite art and her mother also operated a successful, eclectic antiques business. Orseola’s family has very strong ties to Venice and is deeply rooted in history as her family is one of the twelve famous families known as “apostolic” founders of Venice – her ancestor being the 5th Doges of Venice. After living in London and Paris, she returned to Venice where she now lives once again. She is one of Antiques Diva Guides in Venice where she operates an antiques business, specializing in antique textiles and rare objects. She loves working not only in antique art but also seeking intersections between the antique and the contemporary field of art through the mediation of the creative process.
