May be you wonder what these drawings can possibly be ....
These are the tipical Genoan graniglia floors fashionable from 1600 on.
These belong to her house which is coeval to the Casa Rossa, the very first years of 1900.
They were made with small tassels of coloured marbles linked with multicoloured mortars and the polished till they shined like mirrors
The patterns could be of any kind , abstract , naturalistic , geometrical, architectural but always of bold colours.
I'd like to reproduce something of this sort in my Casa Rossa, which, BTW, is slooooowly in progress.
The goal is not the easiest to achieve but I have all the time I need ....a whole life !
