Practice Makes Perfect: Ars Antiqua Collection
Savelli's private collection counts more than a hundred 18th and 19th-century Roman micromosaics. It is in fact the largest private collection of micromosaics in the world, second only to that of Queen Elizabeth II. Some of the mosaics are permanently exhibited at the Vatican Museums. Others were put on display at the Napoleonic Museum of Rome in 2016 as part of the «Minute Visioni» project dedicated to the art of micromosaics.
Maria Grazia Branchetti, expert at art history and micromosaics, devoted an entire book to the Ars Antiqua private collection. The monography is available for purchase online.
Gallery Specialties: Subjects and Techniques
At the Savelli Mosaic Gallery, you’ll find a selection of mosaic replicas of world-famous masterpieces, Grand Tour favorite subjects, and some of the most revered works of sacred art.
Besides the marble cubes and vitreous enamel techniques, our mosaic makers excel in the 18th-century Roman technique of micromosaic, capable of authentic artistic marvels.
