It was in 1965 that Gianfranco Califano, at a young age, touched his first piece of marble and then begin to specialize in the manufacturing of coatings and floors (in Italy). Many churches, private homes and institutions are testimonies to the work of Gianfranco, all skillfully highlighting the details and allure of natural stone. Italy, France and Romania have been fortunate to have encountered the work and spirit of Maestro Gianfranco.
From the age of eight, Patrik spent the summer holidays (in Italy) in the yard where his father, Gianfranco, worked on marble, granite and mosaic floorings. This began Patrik’s training of the techniques for processing natural stone.
After graduatig from the Fine Arts school in Timisoara, Roamania, Patrik developed a vision that merged his years at art school with his hands-on experience working along side his father. This vision became ARCA MOSAICO.
ARCA MOSAICO has for years created unique art and beauty by its achievements in natural stone. The experimenting with stone and materials, such as metal, glass and wood, combined together help make every home elegant, luxurious and unique.
