The artistic tradition of de Filippis family started back in the 19th century. Grandfather Emilio I specialised in marble sculpture in Paris, and the tradition was carried forward by his son Ernesto in monumental, religious and residential architectural marble elements. Ernesto’s son, Emilio II, known as Ilio, moved to Florence to learn the technique of hard and semi-precious stones inlay, called “Pietre Dure”, allowing him to express his own versatile creativity in Florentine mosaics, as well as architecture and interior design – thanks to the savoir-faire his family passed down to him. In fact today, Pitti Mosaici has also an active interior design department which operates internationally, carrying out bespoke residential and commercial projects recalling the classical Italian style and atmosphere.

Visiting Mosaici Pitti feels like being an artisan for a day. The owner was happy to share his knowledge and culture, and watching the masters on the job was hypnotizing to say the least.

Pitti Mosaici is a place of passion, values ​​and love. When you enter the shop you feel pampered, loved and important, you are in a place full of art, magic and warmth because already the welcoming is excellent, they make you feel at home. Then the products, the attention to detail, the control of perfection make Pitti Mosaici the best in the city of Florence. I recommend even just passing in front of the shop, to understand the wonder of the place, in front of one of the most important buildings of the Italian history, Palazzo Pitti, but I already know that you will enter, and you will be involved in this magic and emotion.

The story behind Pitti Mosaici goes even beyond his founder. Pitti Mosaici represents the survival of true Italian fine arts in the modern era, such deep experience and knowledge which run in the veins of the people who are making the impossible possible: delivering high quality art products in a world where taste is never enough educated to true beauty. Pitti Mosaici represents a courageous heritage of a beauty almost lost.

This art can also be described as "painting with stones" and watching the artisans at Pitti Mosaici's laboratory/workshop is simply mesmerizing to my eyes! They create beautiful mosaic panels and tables of various sizes, subjects, qualities and prices, as well as bespoke creations. Buying one of their unique artworks means treasuring for a life time and for the next generations to come, besides supporting an ancient dying art form. DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED!
