The beautiful tradition of semi-precious stone mosaics is an
ancient art that flourished in the sixteenth-century Florence of Ferdinando I De 'Medici and found its natural continuation in our laboratory, in the heart of
the city, in the name of absolute and recognized excellence. This particular technique that allows amazing pictorial and decorative effects is defined
as “commesso fiorentino”: from the Latin word committere, which means to put together, to unite. The masters Renzo and his son Leonardo Scarpelli create "stone paintings" using all the shades and color varieties of natural stones. Their paintings reach an expressive charge and a pictorial delicacy that never stop
to arouse wonder because it seems incredible to find such beauty in a hard and difficult material such as stone. The Tuscan landscapes, Florence and Arno river,
children and animals playing, rural scenes, seascapes, still lifes, flowers, can be found in jewels, paintings, tables and reproductions of famous paintings
capable of thrilling the viewer for their poetry and perfect execution. Florence remains the cradle of the semi-precious stone mosaic, a process handed down
for centuries in the workshops and which today has remained in the hands of very few Florentine master craftsmen.
