SICIS dresses in gold the Theatre of Memory

10 May 2021 |

Adorned with an enchanting golden veil now pillar of the Italian Pavilion at the Dubai 2020 Expo, the Theatre of Memories is hosting a special guest: Michelangelo’s David 3D twin brother.

SICIS' mosaics at the Italian Pavilion at the Dubai Expo: within the theatre of memories a veil of light for David’s twin brother

SICIS, an Italian company of excellence and Platinum sponsor of the Italian Pavilion is the creator of the mosaic veil, a true work within the work. Tesserae in glass and gold, SICIS recreates elements from the original mosaics of Palazzo dei Normanni and the Palatine Chapel in Palermo run along the walls surrounding the theatre. The dome of the tower instead, redesigns the starry sky of the vault of Galla Placidia in Ravenna.
To elaborate these formidable mosaic tales over two and a half million mosaic tesserae were used, created according to state-of-the-art processes. Each tesserae worked and laid by hand by mosaic masters at the Ravenna atelier and only later transported and installed in their final destination to give life to each section of the project.

For over thirty years SICIS, synonymous of creative thinking and operating out of the box, produces in its factory mosaic and artistic mosaics using material strictly made in Italy, born from R&D in a perfect combine with ancient techniques. A contemporary adaptation of a noble and formidable past. 

SICIS embraces fully the cultural and symbolic value of the Italian Pavilion at the first Universal Exposition hosted by a Middle East country, and its theme: Beauty Unites People. And through these works we contribute by making the space itself a place capable of offering an unforgettable experience not only for the events hosted but for the grandeur of the decorative architectural project, a gallery where you can meet Italian style, culture, history, craftsmanship, industry and passion.

For SICIS this is a very familiar process, one confronted every day. As everyday SICIS creates art and products to stand out, unique mosaics, unparalleled glass slabs but also fabrics, furnishings and objects of pure elegance, jewels and watches that retain a distinctive soul. Incomparable miniatures in micromosaic combined with precious stones, immersive compositions between gemology and decorative science.
