SICIS, in occasion of its 30th anniversary, participates in the 5th edition of RavennaMosaico. An important exhibition will highlight the profound connection with its city, a historic landmark of mosaic.
The event is a wonderful journey through SICIS evolution, explaining the complexity of the “world of mosaic”: an itinerary where techniques, materials, creativity, artistic sensitivity and skills of mosaic masters enter into a virtual simulation.
The installation will be hosted in the famous Palazzo Rasponi delle Teste, a monumental palace of the 15th century. The exhibition will be an engaging experience expressed with videos and pictures that will guide through the company’s evolution, until the rediscovery of the 18th century micro-mosaic applied to jewelry and re-interpreted by important stylists, gemologists and goldsmiths. An extensive phase of study and research that started 20 years ago, uniting different craftsmanships.
The ‘micro-mosaic hall’ in particular, will be entirely dedicated to the precious jewelry of SICIS. This technique flourishing in the 17th century and almost disappeared in 18th century, returns, more alive than ever thanks to SICIS in the 21st century.
The company has invested resources to study, retrieve and bring back this art to the glamour of the Grand Tour, when princes and princesses, kings and queens, czars and nobles adored micro-mosaic jewels. Incredible high manufactured jewelry, a real ‘wow’ effect that no one will be able to resist.
This journey aims to be a special way to enter into SICIS great and incredible reality. Its production, completely made in Italy, has transformed the mosaic into a communication tool that can express trends and boost new markets.
