It is a monographic work dedicated to a Roman mosaicist: Giacomo Raffaelli, heir to a family tradition in the production of vitree pastes dating back to the middle of the 17th century. In the last three decades of the 18th century his studio in San Sebastianello, corner of Piazza di Spagna in Rome, became a must-visit destination for the sophisticated tourists from the Alps and for the European nobility who did not fail to buy plaques, tables or jewels designed by the school of the Roman minute mosaic. His fame won him prestigious awards and in 1804, on behalf of the Napoleonic government, he founded a mosaic school in Milan. Here he stayed until 1820, bringing to fruition one of the masterpieces in the genre of the minute mosaic: the life-size replica of Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper" (Vienna, Minoritenkirche). The texts, accompanied by extensive documentary and iconographic apparatus, examine the entire production, known to this day. The wide selection of color images illustrates mosaics and works of lapids belonging to museums and private collections in Europe and the United States.
