About the experience "Ravenna Mosaic"

The workshop of Arianna and Luca is the ideal starting point for a journey of discovery of the cultural heritage of Ravenna.

The mosaic that you will create will be a reproduction of an ancient Roman or Byzantine mosaic, created directly on cement mortar.

After a brief introduction to mosaic, and to the cutting of the tessera tiles using the ancient tools of the trade, martellina e tagliolo, you'll actively participate in every stage of the creation of your work: from the drafting of the cement mortar to the completion of the mosaic.

You'll use precious materials that were employed in antiquity, such as marble, Venetian enamels and golden tessera tiles, depending on the recreation of your choice.

With Arianna and her team, you'll learn that making a mosaic is not just a simple technical procedure, but a wonderful artistic language of the Italian tradition.
