Bisazza Certified Master Mosaic Installer

Seeing people stop and admire a mosaic artwork when they walk past is complete and utter satisfaction…Meet artisan tiler Rob Di Virgilio, a proud Melbournian and the only person in Victoria to be trained as a Bisazza Master Mosaic Installer. Rob has been in the mosaic industry for 30 years. He has realised that as time goes on, his unique trade and skills are rare and very precious. He was taught the traditional Italian glass mosaic methods by his now retired father Umberto Di Virgilio, who immigrated to Australia in 1956. He has completed two master mosaic courses in Italy and is the technical consultant for Bisazza in Victoria.

Throughout his career he has created many beautiful works for governments and private enterprises – including but not limited too:

-Designed and installed detailed glass and stone tile installations over a 12 month period at Figgins Diorama, 172 Collins Street in the early 1980s;

-Designed and installed eight of the bathroom ensuites and restoration at Government House, all while Victoria’s Governor Sir James Gobbo remained living at the house; and

-Created two works listed on the Mosaic Walks Melbourne Apple App

- Baci Café Red Lips couch on Southbank Promenade

- The swimming pool surrounds at the Hyatt on the Park
