The Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli participates in Mosart – Spilimbergo mosaic art Festival with exhibitions, two talks, a workshop and the extraordinary opening of its headquarters.

Mosart, an event that aims to highlight and enhance the bond between Spilimbergo and the mosaic, promoted by the Municipality and curated by Silvana Annicchiarico, identifies the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli as the training center of excellence for mosaic art. The School founded in 1922 has been able to update on the technical bases dictated by tradition, the formal expression and the areas of application of the mosaic. He engages in the training of students from all over the world and gives them the knowledge of an ancient practice, enlivened by the confrontation with the contemporary.

On Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th September will be organized free guided tours that will allow everyone to walk the corridors of the School, see the classrooms where the new mosaic masters are trained and admire the collection of over 1,000 mosaic works created in ninety years of activities.

The importance of color and the consequent choice of materials play a fundamental role in elevating the mosaic to artistic expression. This relationship between color and mosaic is investigated in the exhibitions, organized by the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli, CHROMOS 1. Il lessico del colore that will be inaugurated on Saturday 28 September at 3.00 pm in the church of San Giovanni Battista, and CHROMOS 2.

The exhibition CHROMOS 2 is flanked by two unusual proposals to learn about and read the mosaic: Innesti, a refined collection of mosaic-decorated trays, and Mosaici filatelici, a collection of postcards and stamps celebrating the mosaic in the world, curated by the collector Bruno Marchesin. These three exhibitions, set up in the Galleria of Scuola (building adjoining the teaching center) will be presented to the public on Saturday 28 September at 7.00 pm.
