Guilia is a master mosaicist. She study in Italy in only professional school for mosaicist in the world.
Giulia participate as an artisan to create collective works for important international brands. She realized big church works from the material selection to the definitive setting in place. Recently Giulia done a big project for a church in Puglia, a six meters cross.
"When I was 19 I moved to Milan for studying architecture at Polythecnic of Milan, one of the best architecture school in the world. In my three years experience in Milan I reach the graduation (first level), I continue to work for my maintenance as waiter and I pass the state exam to become a registered architect.
But something still missed. I go on Camino di Santiago with my dog and a tent, and stay away from home for some months, to reach what I want to do next.
Thanks to this experience I continue to be an architect, but next year I be fall in Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli in Spilimbergo. I decide to move there for other three years. I was busy with school 8 hours a day, but still follow some architectural project.
Finished the school, I return back in Verona where I worked for a bigger mosaic factory, and I made big church mosaics for all around the world.
Now I am trying to reach my own mosaic-style."
Giulia can reproduce mosaics in any style.
Typically, the cost of mosaics is calculated individually for each case per square meter and the number of subjects, depending on the intended image and the preferred technique.
Roman mosaics style is usually created by flat regular small pieces (1x1 cm) of marble or glasses (not typically old roman mosaics. Ancient roman mosaics are almost totally marble), in muted tones. Originally the theme is nature, animals (also gods, fauns, mermaids, hunting scenes etc.), and geometrical and decorative themes. Can be created for the floor.
Byzantine style mosaics can be created by flat irregular pieces with vibrant, sparkling colours (here we can usually find glasses) and adding gold pieces (often the background is entirely made of gold). Originally was used for churches and icons with human and religious themes. We can find it on walls and domes.
Modern mosaics can be randomly shaped, (usually by 2x1 pieces of Venetian glasses, made with reverse on paper technique).
With the Indirect method, the mosaic is created backwards like a mirror image. The method involves temporarily fixing the mosaic pieces to a removable backing which holds the design together. When completed the whole mosaic is transferred onto the base.
Contemporary mosaics can be created by the different mix of materials in the same piece of art, mixed irregular volume pieces with flat pieces.
difference of styles
Mosaic may be applied to walls, celling and floors.
Mosaics can be installed also in vet places such as swimming pools or kitchens and outdoor. It's a great solution to have art pieces in places where is impossible to have canvas paintings.

Contemporary mosaic can be represented as an original "painting with marble and glasses".
Giulia still work using ceppo and martellina, ancient roman instruments.
