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!

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

We loved our mosaic experience with Lea! She had a great wealth of knowledge and experience that she shared with us and gave us very good, clear, and concise instructions that allowed us to work pretty independently but ask for assistance if needed. The studio was very clean and beautiful. She was very warm and welcoming and it was such a unique experience to be able to create our own souvenirs from a place so famous for its mosaics! Five stars!

What a wonderful experience!! Lea is an amazing person and an expert in her field. The moment we stepped into her workshop, we felt so comfortable. Lea is a great storyteller and you could feel her passion flowing when she talked about the mosaics. She was very thorough in her demonstrations and gave us ample space and time to learn it at our own pace. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. We made lovely designs together. Thank you Lea :)

It’s a fantastic experience about handmade mosaic! For sure I got a unforgettable memory during the time stayed with Lea. Honestly, It’s a unique and worthy experience in Ravenna. If anyone who want to design their special pic or idea with mosaic, you must tell Lea before.

Excellent! Lea is superprofessional and very friendly. Everything was as described, our mosaics are nearly beautiful (the result depends on your own abilities ;) and not on Lea). Lea encourages free creativity, and mosaic art is akin to meditation- so we left the workshop in a very peaceful state. Try it - you will not regret.
