The Content Of The Article:

My craftsman installed me the plumbing of my shower with the system "Rapido T" of Grohe for the embedding in the wall with exit shower + hand shower. For the shower piping, the plumber installed me a male threaded exit and... horror.... in the market, all the recessed shower head rods are also with a male thread! To remedy this plumber craftsman has targeted a nut to assemble but the hubcap to fix the wall (sold in the kit of the shower head) does not hide this assembly too thick and makes the whole unsightly. Is there a solution to recover this mistake, without having to break everything since the tiles are already laid?

Alas, I think there is currently nothing on the market that allows to hide this unattractive assembly, except to find a more domed hubcap or make a custom made piece by a metalworker. The assembly error is the responsibility of your craftsman... put it in default to comply with the assembly requirements and suffer the consequences (tiling restoration).
