Opus tessellatum mosaic (3rd century AD) | Latin name for the normal technique of Greek and Roman mosaic, made from tesserae that are larger than about 4 mm. Tesserae - is an individual tile, usually formed in the shape of a cube, used in creating a mosaic. It is also known as an abaciscus or abaculus.
The colourful swirls and twirls of classic Pucci prints actually work rather well when transferred on the mosaic patterns, creating bold and visually striking effects. For the occasion Bisazza created both digital mosaic designs and handmade opus tessellatum mosaics. The former are made employing modern mosaic technology and feature the Amelie, Onde and Pizzo prints.05. BISAZZA wears EMILIO PUCCI_ FONTANA_still life_01
