I loved visiting this school to see the young artists making their incredible works of art. You can look at the workshops and see how the mosaics are made from start to finish. In addition the halls of the school are covered by the works of classes from the past. It’s a true marvel to see. If you’re at all interested in this type of art, you must visit this place. It’s magical.

What an education! I have been making mosaics for over 30 years and teaching. I have been lucky enough to visit mosaics all over the world and I have even watched workmen recreating Roman mosaics in Israel. Visiting this school shed a whole new light on mosaic for me. I bought their books and can’t wait to return to Australia to show my students. I would love to do course here.

Spilimbergo appears to be a sleepy little town with a castle (converted into apartments), a cathedral (closed) and the Mosaic Scool (fascinating!)
The school (founded in 1922) is a short distance from the town centre and is in an unremarkable buidling; the entrance is around the back from the car park. You are conducted around the school through corridors lined with wonderful mosaics and you can look through doorways to see the students bent over their work, being supervised by their teacher. (You cannot enter these classrooms but you can go round the classrooms not in use and see the unfinished work left by the students.) On the first floor, there is a large room full of examples of the work produced in the school ranging from reproductions of ancient mosaics to completely new contemporary and abstract designs, using just colours.
The school is very quiet, the only sound being the tap tap of the students little hammers breaking the stones into small pieces. It is good to see that the ancient craft of mosaics is still being carried on today and is well worth a visit.

It doesn't seem like much from the outside, but wow when you get inside and start moving among the classrooms... Visitors can freely circulate the school and observe what the students are doing in all classrooms. It's an unusual experience, you know - to see such a quiet school: everybody's concentrated on their own work, some people wear headphones and work.
The pieces are amazing, you wouldn't believe what types of "pictures" people can do with these little pieces of material.
Consequently, there are lots of mosaics across the city as well.
On a separate note, there's also a cute gelato bar on the corner of the street, where all the students apparently go during their break :)

Entrance is free. Obviously closed on weekends, since it's a school. Parking in front.
They also have a website for more detailed information.

Friends suggested we visit the school, but the front door was locked and the building seemed vacant when we arrived. We wandered around to the back patio, where several mosaic pieces were on display. We tried the back doors, and they were unlocked, so we went in. One of the instructors said we we: classrooms where we saw student works-in-progress, hallways with exceptional pieces on display, and two galleries filled with artwork. The techniques are traditional but the results are extraordinary, ranging from classic to contemporary. In particular, the portraiture was spectacular. Do visit this gem!

Situated near the town centre but on a side street, there are some beautiful works on display in this interesting school. It is well worth taking the tour as you can watch some artisans working, and learn about the different ways that mosaics are created. It may be that not all of the tour will be offered in English, but you will still enjoy the experience and demonstrations. Don't let the language barrier separate you from an interesting and educational encounter.

Among many great experiences during a week in the Friulli Venezia Giulia region, this stands out as one of the highlights. We visited in a Sunday, when the school was closed, so we had free run of the whole place, classrooms included. The quality of the work produced by the students is extraordinary and goes well beyond the traditional mosaics in the classic style. Thank goodness places of learning like this survive and thrive in tough modern times.

A really good insight into mosaic artwork. As I only speak English I would have liked more translated explanations next to artworks however I understand you can't cater for everyone. Some of the 3D mosaics were amazing. There are true artisans out there. I would have liked to see more pieces for sale too. Overall definitely worth the visit.

A local friend took me here. It is an internationally acclaimed school for learning mosaic. Students from all over the world come to this small town to learn. The students of the school become experts in the field, and they are commissioned to take part in major international projects.

I did not have a tour, but rather my friend was knowledgeable. If possible, I would recommend getting a tour.

You can peek into the classrooms and learn a bit about what it takes to be a mosaic artist.
