History

"The mosaic is painting for eternity"
(Ghirlandaio)
In ancient times, the mosaic was conceived as a floor covering to give solidity, stability and weather resistance. The Romans made mosaics that were easy to carry in order to bring comfort and beauty everywhere they moved. From this use of the mosaic comes the term "stone carpet", or a mosaic that can be trampled on like a rug but which was more durable and guaranteed a greater level of well-being. The mosaic floor was also an index of wealth and social status.

In Rome, in the imperial era, the floor mosaic became a true artistic decoration, passing from the mosaic as a carpet, to the mosaic with "carpet", or with more and more scenographic and complex decorations like works of art. The mosaic has thus become, for centuries, an essential part of the well-being of private life, which then extended to public life through mosaic decorations in pools, spas, fountains and gardens. This has made mosaic art become more and more sought-after in the centuries whit function and at the same time refined and decorative.

The mosaic continues to be a top-level and floorless lining that enters private or public living spaces and makes them unique and full of light and elegance.
