The 2019/2020 school year was inaugurated

The school year 2019/2020 of the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli in Spilimbergo began on Monday 23 September at 8.30 a.m. The inaugural ceremony was held in the school’s assembly hall in the presence of President Stefano Lovison and director Gian Piero Brovedani.

Wishing to bring their best wishes, guests were welcomed by the mayor of Spilimbergo Enrico Sarcinelli and regional councilor Alessandro Basso.

Also present for the Municipality of Spilimbergo is the councilor for education, culture – library, Ester Filipuzzi and the assessor for production and promotional activities Anna Bidoli.

President Lovison recalled the importance and the identity of the Scuola Mosaicisti, born in Spilimbergo but growing up to represent, with the introduction in the Consortium of new local bodies, the entire Friuli area. A place that has always been dedicated to education, where for over ninety years the “mosaic masters” have been formed, but also a creative and productive center, capable of responding to external commissions, and an exhibition that with the 37,000 visitors last year is confirmed as one of the destinations most loved by tourists in our region. A reality that therefore combines culture, work, tradition and innovation.

The mayor of Spilimbergo Enrico Sarcinelli underlined how the Scuola Mosaicisti is a flagship for the region, with an internationally recognized importance and has entrusted the students with the burden and honor of maintaining that reputation.

Precisely the specialized nature of the Scuola Mosaicisti which offers specific training of high professional level, was highlighted by the intervention of the regional councilor Alessandro Basso.

The director Gian Piero Brovedani then presented the staff that make up the Mosaic School and in particular the teachers, coordinated by Danila Venuto, who were entrusted with the students for an introduction to the curriculum.

The morning ended with the distribution of over seventy students in their respective classrooms and laboratories. This year the second and third courses are flanked by two courses of the first year, each consisting of sixteen students and of these more than half come from outside Italy: France, from Switzerland, France, Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Georgia, but also from China and South Korea, and from India and Pakistan.
