LA MUSA MOSAICI
Taste, craft experience and precious materials all contained in a mosaic workshop. It is placed in the heart of the Roman Castles, inside the old town centre of Castel Gandolfo, along the road leading to summer residence of the Pope. Musa Mosaici represents the answer to the need of living inside the beauty, common to all people. The name was chosen on purpose; in fact, mosaic comes from a Greek term meaning “belonging to the muses”.
Musa Mosaici is a mosaic workshop specialised in sacred art, in cooperation with many artists and architects, and right now is cultivating its real passion that is interior design.
Here, mosaic art is used in all its shapes and colours, using noble material like Carrara marble, venetian enamel, gold and silver in order to personalise and make unique every house with mosaic tables, pavements, paintings and lamps.
In the studio, different processing techniques are used. Starting from the direct process, the most ancient ones, which allow playing with colours and volumes in order to have a similar result as bas-relief; to the indirect process, which allow working on big mosaics directly in the studio and then insert them in the desired place.
Both techniques start from a drawing realised on cardboard. On the contrary, with the method on net it is possible to put the mosaic tiles directly on every support.
Musa Mosaici offers the possibility to experiment in first hand and to learn the different processing techniques of mosaic by attending mosaic classes. It is also possible to arrange group visits to the studio.
