There is still time to visit the MOSAICI una tradizione in evoluzione (MOSAICS an evolving tradition) exhibition at the Terrazza a Mare in Lignano Sabbiadoro, which will remain open until the first Sunday of February.
If you consider that nearby, on the Lungomare Trieste, the Sand Nativity scene is set up, amazing for the material with which it is made, the opportunity is favorable to spend time immersed in art.
The exhibition on the mosaic, commissioned and supported by the Municipality of Lignano in the context of the Christmas events, highlights, through a selection of works carried out by the students of the Mosaic School of Friuli over the past few years, the expressive potential of the mosaic and in particular of contemporary mosaic, also declined in design.
More than forty works are exhibited in the bright spaces of the Terrazza a Mare. You can walk observing examples of the Roman and Byzantine tradition on the left with the reproposing of mosaics from the basilicas of Aquileia and San Giusto in Trieste. the bottom of the fountain designed by Raimondo D’Aronco for the Biennial Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Monza is also reproduced. It was the first public success of the Mosaic School of Friuli that had been established only a year before, in 1922, and the aquatic subjects recall the context in which the exhibition is hosted. At the entrance, a historic school bench on which the raw material of the mosaicists, stones and enamels is placed, reminds us of the commitment and how much precision is hidden behind each composition.
Continuing the journey, you can admire various works, including large ones: from a mosaic carpet to the three-dimensional shapes of the mosaic sculptures, from portraits of well-known characters to the modules of the wall installations. Then there are the design solutions, the table, the vase, the stele, where the mosaic is not only a covering, but becomes a constitutive element.
The exhibition therefore allows you to get to know and appreciate an art that, although ancient, is capable of renewing itself and keeping up with the times thanks to the skill and creativity of the mosaic masters.
EXHIBITION TIMES: every Saturday and Sunday from 10.00 to 18.00.
