At the United World College in Duino
The United World College of the Adriatic, whose headquarters are in Duino, wanted to introduce its students to the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli, as a recognized excellence of the region. A presentation was therefore organized within the College which saw the top management of the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli, the president Stefano Lovison and the director Gian Piero Brovedani, stand in front of the international audience of young students.
President Lovison brought greetings recalling the centennial history of the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli and, after some video documents, it was the director Brovedani who recounted the organization and activity of the School, without omitting indications and curiosities about the art of mosaic , from the Roman, classic and best-known forms, up to the contemporary ones in which the School was a pioneer.
Welcomed by the rector of the Khalid El-Metaal College and accompanied on an interesting visit to the College by teachers and members of the teaching staff, the president Lovison and the director Brovedani were able to ascertain the specific features of the Duino institution which make it a unique educational place in Friuli Venezia Giulia, starting from the values that are transmitted and its openness to the world.
The idea of a meeting had emerged during a visit by the president of the United World College of the Adriatic, Cristina Ravaglia, and by the rector El-Metaal to the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli. On that occasion the guests had been able to admire the mosaic works of the School and grasp the singularity of the Spilimbergo institution, certainly due to the art that is taught there, but also to the origin of its students who make it a model of exchange and integration. The School has also shown that it is able to combine the desire to cultivate the artisan knowledge of mosaic and terrazzo, recognized in the region for history and tradition, with the creative impulses and drive for innovation dictated by the expressiveness and needs of the current times . A school therefore linked to tradition, but capable of looking to the future, open to motivated young people from any country who demonstrate tenacity and passion for mosaics.
The presentation in Duino was for the students of the College a first moment of approach and knowledge of the mosaic and of the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli, to deepen in ongoing training projects that see the School and the College united in the objective of offering experiences capable of enriching and to develop creative and entrepreneurial potential.
