Tour & short class of mosaic in Ravenna

Museums & Tourist Attractions

In the heart of Ravenna, a World Heritage Site, Koko Mosaico carries on the language of the mosaic, constantly renewing it, without losing sight of its roots.

The workshop is like an ancient art shop, where you can buy and order mosaics and learn the techniques of realization.

At the same time you can admire the contemporary works of the artist Luca Barberini.

The course we propose is just a small taste of the grandeur of this ancient art.

You can realize a copy of an ancient mosaic of the Roman or Byzantine period, directly created on cement mortar.

After a brief introduction to the mosaic and the cutting of the tiles with the ancient tools of the trade - small hammer and carbide hardie -  you will actively participate to every phase of realization of your artwork: from the drafting of the cement mortar, to the completion of the mosaic.

You can use precious materials that were already used in the ancient times as marble, Venetian enamels and golden tiles, depending on the copy you chose to recreate.

The objective will be to realize a mosaic of about 10x10 cm.
