As many of you know, we had taken a recent trip to Lake Como, Italy, and naturally were smitten with the beauty and history of the location. Yes, the towns and streets and villas are indeed gorgeous as are the breathtaking micro mosaic artifacts and home goods. We were in the Lago di Como town of Argegno and found a gorgeous church –Sant’Anna which dates to the 17th Century. The outer façade has gorgeous micro mosaic and frescoes work in brilliant colors. I have attached a couple photos for you all to see the outside of the Sant’Anna church and the view from a hill above the church looking over Lake Como.
I did not know much about Micro Mosaic except that the Italians are famous for it so, I thought perhaps there are others out there that do not know much about it either and began researching and found this incredibly informative website with great information and history and pictures of this great art.
