FON­DA­TO NEL 1933, il la­bo­ra­to­rio ar­ti­sti­co Fa­vret t è il pri­mo e più bla­so­na­to la­boa­bo­ra­to­rio di Pie­tra­san­ta de­di­cai­ca­to al mo­sai­co. Ne rac­con­ta nta la sto­ria con or­go­glio Pao­lo ao­lo Fa­vret che, al­la ter­za ge­nee­ne­ra­zio­ne, gui­da con pas­sio­ne io­ne l’at­ti­vi­tà di fa­mi­glia. Lon­ta­ni nta­ni so­no i tem­pi in cui non­no Lu­cia­no de­ci­se di tra­sfe­rir­si rir­si da Ve­ne­zia a Pie­tra­san­ta, ov­ve­ro ve­ro dal­la cit­tà in cui la tra­di­zio­ne ne mu­si­va è ra­di­ca­ta fin dall’epo­ca bi­zan­ti­na al luo­go che, per la vi­ci­nan­za za del­le ca­ve di mar­mo, of­fri­va ed of­fre un con­tat­to di­ret­to con la ma­te­ria pri­ma. Pre­sto, da sem­pli­ce bot­te­ga, di­ven­ne un’azien­dan­da strut­tu­ra­ta in cui si for­ma­ro­no ge­ne­ra­zio­ni dii mo­sai­ci­sti che poi dif­fu­se­ro in Ver­si­lia que­sta tec­ni­ca di al­to ar­ti­gia­na­to ar­ti­sti­co. Nel cor­so del­la sua lun­ga­ga esi­sten­za Fa­vret Mo­sai­ci ha rea­liz­za­to ope­re di gran­de an­de pre­sti­gio – ad esem­pio per la Cat­te­dra­le di St. Paul in Li­ba­no, per la cu­po­la del Pa­laz­zo Rea­le di Riad, per la Cat­te­dra­le del­la Tra­sfi­gu­ra­zio­ne a To­ron­to – e ha de­co­ra­to l’ae­ro­por­to di Ho­no­lu­lu, il Getty Vil­la di Pa­ci­fic Pa­li­sa­des, in Ca­li­for­nia, il grat­ta­cie­lo di Ho­pewell ad Hong Kong e la pa­vi­men­ta­zio­ne del Mu­seo Na­zio­na­le del Bel­gio. Og­gi, ac­can­to al­la com­mit­ten­za pub­bli­ca, lo stu­dio met­te a di­spo­si­zio­ne la pro­pria espe­rien­za so­prat­tut­to per la de­co­ra­zio­ne di vil­le pri­va­te ed ele­gan­ti im­bar­ca­zio­ni, rea­liz­zan­do au­ten­ti­che ope­re d’ar­te per giar­di­ni, pi­sci­ne, pa­vi­men­ti, sa­lo­ni per ri­ce­vi­men­ti e ba­gni ter­ma­li. Gra­zie an­che al per­so­na­le al­ta­men­te qua­li­fi­ca­to (tut­ti gli ar­ti­gia­ni dell’azien­da han­no ti­to­li ar­ti­sti­ci e ac­ca­de­mi­ci) Fa­vret sod­di­sfa ogni ti­po di esi­gen­za del clien­te, dal­la fa­se pro­get­tua­le al­la scel­ta dei co­lo­ri e dei ma­te­ria­li (smal­ti ve­tro­si, ori, mar­mo…), fi­no al­la mes­sa in ope­ra in ogni par­te del mon­do. Tut­ti i mo­sai­ci Fa­vret so­no rea­liz­za­ti esclu­si­va­men­te a ma­no. Ac­qui­stan­do va­lo­re nel tem­po, le ope­re so­no sem­pre ac­com­pa­gna­te da un cer­ti­fi­ca­to di au­ten­ti­ci­tà.

| From Ver­si­lia, the mo­saics that ma­ke the world’s top-chic vil­las and ya­ch­ts uni­que | Esta­bli­shed in 1933, Fa­vret Mo­sai­ci Ar­ti­sti­ci is Pie­tra­san­ta’s ol­de­st mo­saic la­bo­ra­to­ry – and still its mo­st ce­le­bra­ted. Pao­lo Fa­vret, third-ge­ne­ra­tion lea­der of the fa­mi­ly bu­si­ness, beams wi­th pri­de as he re­coun­ts the work­shop’s hi­sto­ry. The

c com­pa­ny has co­me a long w way sin­ce Pao­lo’s gran­d­fa­ther Lu­cia­no de­ci­ded to mo­ve from Ve­ni­ce to Pie­tra­san­ta, from a ci­ty wi­th a mo­saic tra­di­tion stret­ching back to the By­zan­ti­ne era to a si­te that, thanks to the pr pro­xi­mi­ty of the mar­ble qua quar­ries, put him in di­rect cont con­tact wi­th the raw ma­te­rials of his art. Not sur­pri­sin­gly, it wa­sn’t long be­fo­re his sim­ple work­shop be­ca­me a well-struc­tu­red com­pa­ny and the trai­ning school for ge­ne­ra­tions of m mo­sai­cists who spread this ar­ti­stic craft tech­niq tech­ni­que th­rou­ghout Ver­si­lia. Over its long hi­sto­ry, Fa­vr Fa­vret has crea­ted ma­ny hi­gh­pre­sti­ge works – for exam­ple, for the Ca­the­dral of Saint Paul in Le­ba­non, for the dom do­me of the Royal Pa­la­ce of Riya­dh Riya­dh, for To­ron­to’s Ca­thed Ca­the­dral of the Tran­sfi­gu­ra­tion – and de­co­ra­ted the Ho­no­lu­lu air­port, the Getty Vil­la in Pa­ci­fic Pa­li­sa­des, CA, and the Ho­pewell sky­scra­per in Hong Kong, as well as pro­vi­ding the floo­ring for the Na­tio­nal Mu­seum of Bel­gium. To­day, be­si­des to its pu­blic-sec­tor clien­ts, Fa­vret ma­kes its ex­pe­rien­ce and ex­per­ti­se avai­la­ble for de­co­ra­ting pri­va­te vil­las and ele­gant ya­ch­ts, for crea­ting true works of art, floo­rings, pa­ve­men­ts, and wall de­co­ra­tions for gar­dens, pools, re­cep­tion halls, and spa fa­ci­li­ties. Fa­vret’s hi­ghly-qua­li­fied per­son­nel (all of the com­pa­ny’s ar­ti­sans hold art di­plo­mas or de­grees) can sa­ti­sfy any client need, from de­si­gn and plan­ning th­rou­gh choi­ce of co­lors and ma­te­rials (gla­zes, gold, mar­bles, etc.) to in­stal­la­tion any­whe­re in the world. Eve­ry­thing Fa­vret does is do­ne by hand, for va­lue that can on­ly in­crea­se over ti­me. And ea­ch work car­ries wi­th it a cer­ti­fi­ca­te of au­then­ti­ci­ty. так фрагменты смальты рождают красоту | мозаика, украшающая виллы и яхты Версильи, делает их уникальными в мире | Основанная в 1933 году художественная мастерская
