Have you ever marveled at a mosaic in a church and wondered “how do they do it?”
Prepare to find out! After our tour of Saint Peter‘s, we will tour the school where they created the mosaics on display in the basilica. This school opened in the 18th century and still makes the most important and beautiful mosaics adoring churches, convents, villas and private collections all over the world.
The mosaic artists use a secret technique invented by Venetian artists in the 17th century. We’ll visit their school and see the mosaic masters in progress – and even learn their trade secrets!
