The art of mosaic is at home in Venice and the Orsoni factory in the Cannaregio district has been producing mosaics – enamels and gold or silver leaf – since 1888. Lucio Orsoni, the last owner, is also a renowned artist that in spite of the figurative tradition uses the glass tiles to create abstract and intensely spiritual works.
