To the more than 30,000 visitors – every year – from all parts of the world, the gallery of the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli presents interesting works, exemplisive of techniques and subjects of all ages. The itinerary is chronological and invests all the history of the mosaic: from the Mediterranean origins of the Greco-Roman mosaic, to the precious surfaces of the Byzantine mosaic, to the expressions, the result of research and experimentation, of contemporary mosaic. Illustrating the many applications of a millennaria technique, the gallery dislocates on two floors: on the ground floor and on the mezzanine floor there are three sections centred on the mosaic program of the first, second and third year of the School. On the first floor, on the other hand, the section dedicated to contemporary mosaics and the section dedicated to artists from the Friuli Venezia Giulia region are exhibited. The classrooms and laboratories can also be visited, places where you can breathe the atmosphere and rituals of making mosaics, where you learn, reflect, elaborate and create all the mosaic heritage that is documented in this gallery. There is also a library, a lecture hall which in various forms provide hints and ideas to deepen the history of the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli and of mosaics in general.
