Filippini & Paoletti is a fourth generation company that was started when Filippini Alfonso, a skillful goldsmith, and Paoletti Vittorio, a student of mosaic artists, decided to open a factory in an old wine cellar in the historic center of Florence. They produced small mosaic masterpieces for the wealthiest of tourists using the art of Mosaic Minute which has been practiced since the 9th century. Using plates of the finest Murano glass, artisans take molten glass and form it into delicate florals then set each tiny shard into detailed mosaics. The process has not changed and has been handed down from craftsman to craftsman, from father to son, to preserve the vibrant colors and the exceptional quality. Each creation is an art piece that captures the proud Italian tradition that has endured more than 13 centuries.
