The Fratelli Traversari firm has specialized in producing artistic mosaics and micro-mosaic costume jewelry since the late 19th century. Today it continues its long family tradition of craftsmanship with pride.
The tesseras of micro-mosaics in spun enamel Murano glass and the typically Florentine mosaics in natural semi-precious stones are carried out entirely by hand using ancient craft techniques. Thanks to over a century’s experience, the Fratelli Traversari firm also creates highly refined articles of costume jewelry with mosaics on brass and silver.
Visitors are welcome in the mosaics workshop in Via Senese, 68/B, run by the fourth generation composed of Franco, the head of the firm, Daniele and Letizia, his children, their cousin Lorenzo, who specialized in the Florentine mosaics in semi-precious stones, and Denis, the master mosaic maker. The DOMO sales point in the centre of Florence is situated in Via della Scala, 19/R, which sells objects from the firm’s mosaic production and other refined articles of Italian craftsmanship.
