Mosaic and gemstones

The working of gemstones finds in Florence points of excellence recognized worldwide.
The working of the traditional mosaic and of the Florentine commesso, that particular technique born and realized right here, in Florence with coloured gemstones, today sees very few craftsmen who remain faithful to the techniques of the past. 
One is amazed at what the Florentine genius is able to create with semi-precious stones: portraits, landscapes, floral compositions and abstract drawings characterize jewelry, furniture and real paintings.

A journey into Florentine mosaic is a journey into something unique, unrepeatable and now unobtainable.
