About

Surrounded by Ravenna's rich cultural heritage (UNESCO lists eight of Ravenna's early Christian monuments as World Heritage Sites), Koko Mosaico continues to explore the language of mosaic yet never loses sight of past traditions. The studio is like an atelier from times past where one can buy and/or commission mosaics.

Team

The team is made up of Luca Barberini, Arianna Gallo and the assistants Anita Pilotti, Melissa Moliterno and Ivana Divković.

Arianna Gallo

I was born near Ravenna on September 2, 1976. I graduated from the Mosaic Institute of Art ‘Gino Severini’ in 1995, and from the School of Mosaic Restoration (Soprintendenza of Cultural Heritage of Ravenna) in 1999. In 2005, my husband and I opened Koko Mosaico. I like to think of our laboratory as an open studio, full of light and international in character: a space where ideas become reality. At Koko Mosaico I take care of the commissions and the artistic collaborations in addition to teaching mosaic techniques.
I love my work.

I was born in Ravenna on August 21st, 1981.
I graduated from the Mosaic Institute of Art Gino Severini in 2000; subsequently I attended professional courses and worked at a number of the mosaic studios in Ravenna.
In 2005, together with my wife, Arianna Gallo, I opened Koko Mosaico.
I'm a visual artist and I like expressing myself through my unique mosaic style and technique.

At Koko Mosaico I am responsible for the production of mosaics and managing the business.
