One last spot
It´s not a joke, we are really coming to Istanbul!
Here´s what´s waiting for you there
Luca Barberini
Luca Barberini was born in 1981 in Ravenna, the true Mecca of mosaics. In a city like this you hardly have a chance to grow up anything but a mosaicist, and Luca went to get his degree in the Gino Severini Art Institute.
In 2005, together with his wife Arianna Gallo, he opens Koko Mosaico - a studio where, like in WOW Mosaic School, they teach both experienced artists and beginners.

Critics say that Luca´s works are "pushing the boundaries of mosaic techniques" and note their "remarkable originality and power of expression". He regularly collaborates with famous modern artists, participates in international mosaics symposiums and displays his art at personal and joint exhibitions.
About the workshop
Are you ready for a three-day master class from one of the leading mosaicists of today Luca Barberini?
On the first day you´ll learn where internationally acclaimed masters get their inspiration, and on the second and third days you will create your own mosaic under the guidance of a famous artist.
We will work in a unique author's technique using smalt and stained glass. In class, you will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ask maestro any questions!
What a workshop — just WOW!

On the second day we will be exploring the Golden Horn districts. You´ll see lines and lines of the traditional buildings, painted dizzyingly bright colors. Life goes on there the same way it did hundreds of years ago, and we will even get a chance to see some remnants of the Bysantine and Ottoman Empires.
We have planned visits to 21 spots of the city - intense? You bet!
