Tour and workshop on mosaics technique.Tour to be confirmed prior to Atelier's availability.


Very few are the examples of ancient Roman wall paintings after 79 A. D. and few are the medieval frescoes in Rome which can be considered intact. Looking at mosaics we understand how strong the figurative decoration must have been. Hundreds of archeological sites still witness durable and outstanding pieces but this magnificent art form undeniably reaches its best in fine and important churches set in this quaint and yet lively hill of Rome: the Esquilino. The guided tour starts focusing on the wonderful body of works left by craftsmen way back in 390 A. D. in the church of Santa Pudenziana , then we will go right into the remarkable Byzantine treasures set in the church of Santa Prassede and just two steps away we'll be visiting the richness of the only Papal church dedicated to the Virgin Mary - Santa Maria Maggiore. This comprehensive tour will end in one of the oldest workshop of Rome with a fun informative private masterclass. You will make your own mosaic!!
