Essential part of the 5th edition of the Ravenna Mosaico festival, Destinazione Micromosaico is an exhibition produced by Sicis, a world leader company in the production of not only decorative mosaics, to celebrate its 30th year of activity. This not to be missed exhibition with free admission will be hosted from 5th October to 7th January 2018 at the 17th century Rasponi dalle Teste Palace, one of the largest and most prestigious noble residencies in the city of Romagna.

After these rooms we can find Sala del Micromosaico, dedicated to the jewels made with the micro mosaic. This technique flourished in the 18th century before disappearing almost completely in the 19th century. The Ravenna-based company has invested resources to study and retrieve this art in order to bring it back to the prestige of the past. Finally, games of images and videos show the mastery of the mosaic of the nature, ranging from the Baroque and Renaissance flower arrangement to the oriental, stylistic Japanese traditions.
