In the classrooms of the first, second, third courses The first research and mosaic creations take shape Realized by the students of the school mosaicists of Friuli.
After entering into confidence with the cutting of the tiles, the students of the first yearare concentrating on mosaic compositions of small surfaces, inspired by forms, decorations and ornaments of Roman typology, made with natural materials.
At the second year They are completing two mosaic panels inspired by the medieval repertoire, made with Byzantine mosaic typology, exalting the chromatic lighting of enamels and golds: the copy of the “Madonna and child” of the Cathedral of San Giusto in Trieste (XII century) and The interpretation of the “crucifix Azzurro” of Assisi (painted Cross of XIII century, made for the Basilica of St. Francis, today in museum)
At Third year Two abstract-geometric mosaic panels designed by Serena Leonarduzzi are being executed: “π color2 ” and“ color2 “They focus on the study of color theory (in particular on the additive synthesis in spatial media) and on the movement of surfaces in space, suggesting waves and pathways of motion and light vibrations. You are also experimenting with samples of workmanship with suggested materials and texturesof the imagination and creativity of the students.
Study and coating of two-dimensional and three-dimensional forms are covered in the matter of Terrazzo, this year particularly focused on the realization of soiled and elements in soiled with natural grit or glass for furnishing interventions Inside and outside the school building.
All the subjects foreseen in the three-year professional course of the school mosaicists of Friuli transmit competences to the future mosaicists. It is useful to remember that A mosaic must be thought of and designed before being realized, Taking into account different aspects related to the approach of the subject, to the technology, to the history, to the possible mosaic applications present in the context of architecture, design, industry. In perspective the students must be able to relate with the spaces, the shapes, the constituent elements of an image (signs, points, surfaces, colours) in order to understand their potentialities, according to their application in the creative path of a mosaic.
Outside the three-year formative course, it is reported-for now in summary-that even the Specialization Course It is working on several fronts: with organizational capacity, the six specialists carry out mosaic works for events and requests, promote mosaics through exhibition appointments and interventions on media, Which we will soon provide documentation.
