About the experience "CREATE A MOSAIC WITH COLORED MARBLE"

During a visit to the eternal city, you'll doubtlessly encounter, within the archaeological sites or the many museums, the wonderful mosaics that decorated Rome of the Emperors. From those same innumerable examples one can draw marvellous inspiration in creating one's own mosaic, using the same techniques, with polychrome marble from the master marble workers of Tivoli. 


The experience also introduces participants to the direct knowledge of the precious ancient marbles of Egypt and Turkey, including red porphyry, Serpentine, Travertine, Ancient Yellow and African, some of which are no longer used due to exhaustion of supply.


Participants can enjoy composing a decorative motif, inspired by ancient subjects, and mounting it on the support to create a small piece of Roman flooring, using colored marble tiles such as Verona red, Biancone, Giallo Africano and Nero Cina. You'll also learn how to cut and shape the tile, according to the form to be created.
This manual laboratory is suitable for everyone and allows you to immediately take your work with you.
