I was born in Naples but my passion for mosaic art led me to relocate to Ravenna.
After few years of experience in a historical local mosaic atelier, sixteen years ago I started to run my own studio which proposes several activities such as mosaic courses for adults and kids, a mosaic shop and a bed and breakfast.
My work gives me the chance to stay in touch with people from different countries and cultures, interests and background. One of the best things is to share my passion for mosaics with people and try to pass down to them about traditions and secrets of this ancient art. It's great to make people able to create something with their own hands with such art experience, I am sure you will love too!

Lea è stata fantastica. Abbiamo avuto 40 minuti di ritardo per colpa mia, avevo segnato l'orario sbagliato sul telefono, e lei è stata comunque super carina ed ha prolungato la sessione per farci finire il nostri mosaico. Una volta visti i suoi lavori ci eravamo giá innamorati dell'experience, è bravissima. Dopo una spiegazione molto precisa sui tipi di marmo, tipi di vetro e strumenti del mestiere ci ha messo subito a comporre il nostro mosaico. personalmente lo consiglierei a chiunque passi da Ravenna. Sará un ricordo indimenticabile del nostro viaggio. grazie ancora Lea per la pazienza e la professionalitá! spero a presto, Carlo P.s. Ci ha pure offerto un succo !

Lea has a beautiful studio and guides you through the mosaic process for beginners and also allowed me to deviate from the typical mosaic patterns and I was able to draw my own piece. Great experience, highly recommend!

This was an awesome experience! Leah is so knowledgeable about different mosaics, and is happy to answer all your questions. What I really liked was the freedom that Leah gave. I personally enjoyed figuring out how to use the tools to cut the marble (roman style mosaic), and lay it down. She gives you support and help when you need it but otherwise it is you getting in the zone, with nice music in the background, and having lots of fun creating your own mosaic piece! Her studio and her energy is lovely. You will not regret booking this experience!

Great way to find out that making mosaics is not as easy as it may seem yet the results are quite presentable :-)

This experience with Lea was great. Before moving onto our own mosaics, she gave us a basic lesson about the art and some espresso. We had a wonderful experience in Lea’s studio and she helped us every step of the way.

Esperienza particolare, anche si la testa mi diceva che non ero in grado di farlo, sono riuscito lo stesso a finire il mio modellino, alla fine la professoressa mi diedi una grande mano negli ultimi dettagli, che fece si che il mio modello fosse agli occhi miei, unico. Grazie 2000
