In the Making: Studio Cassio

December 2, 2022


In the Making

“The Cassio family has been making mosaics for many, many generations. We’re keeping the tradition continuous… We work on mosaics from ancient times—2,000 years ago, Roman empire—up to today.”

On Thursday, December 1, 2022, we had a thrilling conversation with Master Mosaicists Giuliana Medicova and Sara Gozzaldi, live from Studio Cassio in Rome, Italy. They guided us through the history of their ancient craft and demonstrated the variety of ways that mosaics are made.

Nestled in the heart of Rome between Trevi Fountain and the Roman Colosseum sits Studio Cassio, a generations-old Mosaic Art Studio with origins from within the Vatican. Today, Studio Cassio is a thriving studio with projects spanning from historic mosaic restoration, to teaching the craft of mosaic to locals and visitors both in-person and remotely.
