Ninety mosaics from a unique open air museum

The 1,900 inhabitants of Tornareccio have come to think of the ninety mosaics that adorn the outer walls of their homes as untouchable “family members”: in addition to boasting the title of Honey Capital of Abruzzo, this attractive town is now known as a museum of contemporary mosaics. This brilliant initiative has been realised over the years thanks to the vision and determination of a genial patron, Alfredo Paglione, a Milanese dealer and art collector, who has generously and tirelessly spread beauty throughout “his” Abruzzo and elsewhere.
