My wish is for the Pope to come and visit us. The words of the creator of Europe's largest mosaic (in Arezzo)


The largest mosaic in Europe is being created in Indicator. "My wish is for the Pope to come and visit us," declares the artist creator.

Near Arezzo, in the Parish of the Holy Spirit in Indicatore, what is already currently the largest mosaic in Europe is being created and will probably reach completion in ten to fifteen years.

The mosaic carpet was designed by artist Andreina Giorgia Carpenito and depicts the Vision of Ezekiel; hundreds of people around the world are familiar with this work of art and contribute to its creation. Numerous listed mosaics around the world are working on this project, but they are not enough. We rely solely on donations for both materials and labor or funds. These days ten pallets of materials including glass pastes, glazes, and industrial glass tesserae arrived from France, thanks to a donation from mosaicist Mathilde Lhuillier. Nearly six hundred have been donors to date.

The mosaic was created in the forecourt in front of the church: hand-shaped trees and chairs were made with colored tesserae, and the more than 2,000 square meters of mosaic floor are an explosion of colors.

The artist said, “My wish is for the Pope to come and see what is being made here. It’s not just mosaic, but mosaic is opportunities for aggregation. We do inclusion of semi-retired or ex-convicts, people with disabilities and the less affluent, single moms, music school with decommissioned and rehabilitated instruments.”
