OVS Arts of Italy is not only a project which creatively combines the languages of art and fashion. Its main aim is to bring the Italian artistic heritage closer to the OVS community through an original story. That's why OVS Art News items have been created: curiosities, anecdotes and ideas for a more in-depth acquaintance with Italian art to enable you to rediscover, enjoy and appreciate the extraordinary beauty under the eyes of us all.
The sumptuous mosaic of the triclinium of the Domus del Mito, in Sant’Angelo in Vado, as well as being rich in geometric motifs, also features a typical central emblem depicting a fight between fish. This section of the mosaic, which was particularly damaged due to subsidence, has recently been the subject of a sophisticated restoration project. Using the “pulling” technique, the emblem was covered, removed and then repositioned in situ, and today it is possible to admire it in a perfectly flat position.
