Approximately 100 items including paintings, tables, snuffboxes, miniature plaques, jewels and paperweights are on exhibit. These articles display the evolution of miniature mosaics as an art form and present a large variety of subjects ranging from panoramas of Rome, landscapes of the Grand Tour, still lifes and depictions of animals. At the core of the exhibit there is a selection of works from Savelli’s Ars Antiqua collection in Rome, one of the most important collections in the world dedicated to this particular artistic genre and the result of more than forty years of research and purchases. MINUTE VISIONI is also hosting the small yet extremely sophisticated selection of micro-mosaics owned by the Napoleonic Museum which includes two snuffboxes, a parure set of jewels with miniature mosaic plaques set in gold by Antonio Aguatti, a Belgian black marble paperweight and a rare series of jewelled pendants with emblems from the First Roman Republic (1798).
