Bora, the cold, northerly wind that blows from the the northeast onto the Adriatic regions of Italy, Slovenia and Croatia moves downward from the mountains with clusters of clouds and gusts of wind that can reach from 120 -200 km/h. Chains and ropes are occasionally stretched along the sidewalks in downtown Trieste for pedestrians to hang on to lest they be blown away.
Carlo Moretti, one of Venice’s most innovative and unique glassblowers, was inspired by the windy gusts of the Adriatic to create Bora, a series of distinctively designed hand-blown Venetian glass tumblers. Their bold appearance and irregular oval shape comes in a windswept color-blocked collection. Beautiful and essential, their stylized designs are a magical combination for water, cocktails or a soft drink.
