RavennaMosaico 2017 | 5th Edition

Biennial exhibition of contemporary mosaic

from 07/10/2017 to 26/11/2017

Ravenna,  everywhere


From the 7th October to the 26th November 2017, artworks and artists from all around the world meet in Ravenna in occasion of the 5th edition of RavennaMosaico - Rassegna Biennale di Mosaico Contemporaneo (Biennial exhibition of contemporary mosaic).

RavennaMosaico is promoted and organised by the Municipality of Ravenna, in collaboration with AIMC Associazione Internazionale Mosaicisti Contemporanei and the precious contribution of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Ravenna, of the Fondazione del Monte di Bologna e Ravenna and the Marcegaglia Carbon Steel.


Monuments, museums, cloisters and symbolic places of the city will become exceptional galleries where ancient and contemporary art will be in constant dialogue through exhibitions, presentations, meetings and specific installations.

Two are the major events of this year's edition: the exhibition Montezuma, Fontana, Mirko. La scultura in mosaico dalle origini ad oggi - curated by Alfonso Panzetta with the collaboration of Daniele Torcellini - at MAR Museum, will exhibit 140 masterpieces to admire very closely. At Palazzo Rasponi delle Teste, the event SICIS Destinazione Micromosaico will take place to celebrate 30 years of activity of one of the greatest excellences of international design.

SICIS, on his first participation in Ravenna Mosaico, will accompany you in an immersive multimedia experience where you can discover the thirty-year history of the company made of craftsmanship and attention to innovation that enabled it to be present with its works all over the world, up to the perfection of micromosaic in the contemporary jewel, as ultimate expression of Mosaic Art.

The Old Franciscan Cloisters will host Opere dal Mondo, a selection of works from diverse international artists, partners of AIMC, while in the Manica Lunga of theClassense Library don't miss the 4th edition of GAEM - Giovani Artisti e Mosaico, dedicated to all artists under 40 who use the mosaic technique in traditional or sperimental ways.

Always at the historic library there will be also an exhibition dedicated to artist Silvia Celeste Calcagno, curated by Davide Caroli in collaboration with the International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza, and the project Fabule by Accademia di Belle Arti (School of Fine Arts) of Ravenna, a container of multiple events surrounded by a fascinating interweaving of stories.

At the National Museum, two important solo exhibitions will be presented: the first will be dedicated to Felice Nittolo, curated by Emanuela Fiori and Giovanni Gardini; the second, curated by association MARTe, will be dedicated to artists Matylda Tracewskaand Clément Miteran. In the city centre, the Arian Baptistery will host a site-specific installation by artist Marco de Luca.

But RavennaMosaico is also...

In the different mosaic ateliers of the city, you can visit a type of collective artwork dedicated to Dante's Inferno (hell) entitled Inferno in bottega. La Commedia di Dante alla luce del mosaico composed of single creations. Together with other exhibitions, plenty of space will be devoted to the preservation of artworks thanks to theLaboratorio di Restauro del Mosaico del Museo di Classe, that completed the restoration of the copy of the Madonna in Trono of the Basilica of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo.
A meeting entitled Le forme dell'Arte in città: il mosaico contemporaneo, organised by the Università Scuola Superiore Studi Città e Territorio, will deal with the topic of the relationship between street furniture and mosaic art.

And finally, the artistic and social values will give life to the project of the associationDisOrdine which aimes at the redevelopment of the urban zone in front of the ancient prison of Ravenna with an intervention inspired by the maze of the Basilica of San Vitale and the direct participation of the imprisoned.
