Art in...Pieces: The Most Beautiful Mosaics in Rome

  • How can you neglect the art of mosaic in Rome? This is one of the most ancient traditions in the city. Although the Romans borrowed the technique from the Greeks, they undoubtedly gave pride of place to mosaics, which they arranged on walls, floors and ceilings, exploring all the possibilities of this art form. In the Middle Ages mosaics were considered so valuable and unique to be used to adorn the most important holy places.
  • Offering a layout of the history and development of this medium throughout the centuries, the tour will start with the new National Roman Museum at Palazzo Massimo alle Terme, which holds the most splendid floor and wall mosaics from the ancient buildings and astonishing fresco paintings. It will continue to the beautiful church of S. Maria Maggiore, the fourth patriarchal basilica in Rome, to the medieval church of S. Prassede, with the splendor of its Carolingian mosaics, and to St. Peter's, where from the end of the 17th century all the pictures which decorated it where replaced with mosaic replicas. In the Vatican today artists still try to recover old manual skills, and use them in an attempt to achieve lost expressive qualities, producing astonishing art works.
