The Roman micro mosaic is interpreted and used in the creation of precious objects or jewelry. The Roman Micromosaic do it: Roberto Grieco, painter and stage designer, master student of the mosaic tiles of applications in the modern field, Luigi Faraoni, antiquarian, restorer and mosaic, and Silvia Grieco, mosaic artist. The three - "purists" artisans - giving back micromosaic the importance of the past, without altering its historical value with precious stones embedded (process that is often used to hide the poor quality of the technique in Roman mosaic).
Luigi Faraoni - who admits he never stopped studying and reading up - suggested the name of the store inspired by one of the first two books on the subject of micro mosaic.
The fields of application of this art are many, among the most popular thers definitely the inclusion of micro-mosaic in the quadrant of the wrist watches, which become unique pieces made completely by hand. Another field of choice is cuffinks, which have great designs or copies famous works of art. Same thing for rings, pendants and brooches.Finally, the workshop produces many paperweights, made with the technique used on a thread of silver support depicting motifs and subjects that refer to ancient Rome. The objects are all handmade. No machine would be able to perform this processing, especially if we consider the drying times of materials, often lasting around 30 days.
