working the stone

We use both hand chiseling and modern carving techniques

Our stone design production is based on both hand chiseling and modern carving techniques. Our workshops, located at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, employ stone artisans whose skills have been handed down over the centuries in traditions that live on in southern Italy. They include stone chiselers, decorators, pattern designers and ceramic tile producers.
Furthermore, technological innovation and modern carving techniques have now made design applications possible that were once unthinkable.
