HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

We offer a guided tour within our lab. We want to give you the chance to get to know the main steps that allow us to create pavings, benches and gates starting from a piece of stone.
At the end of the visit one of our stone-cutters, will help you carving your name and/or surname on a piece of Pietra Serena. You will have your special souvenir then, so that you will remember of our meeting.

SOME TIPS

We suggest you to wear comfortable clothing and not too colored. In fact in the atelier there's a lot of dust.

VISIT

DISCOVER THE PIETRA SERENA

Andrea, stone worker

12

Evoking the historical context in which the work was born, the traveler will know how the stoneworkers used to deal with "Pietra Serena" and how the company still realizes objects with this incredible sky-colored stone. From the stone-blocks storage to the main finishes you will see how much effort and time are requested to create a floor or a ladder, rather than a fountain or a fireplace. Finally we will show you how pavements are laid in our cities.

WORKSHOP

GOLD AND SILVER

Iacopo, interior decorator

48

Through the ancient technique of the gold leaf, the participants will create a photo frame in gold and silver leaves (imitation). We'll use modern materials and tools that allow the creation of the objects to be quick. The frame that will be created will become a very personal furniture. You can collect it at the end of the workshop. All the materials that we'll use are solvents free. During the workshop we'll visit my atelier and I'll show you other working techniques that I use, such as resins and mosaics.

WORKSHOP

BURIN ENGRAVING CLASS

Negar, goldsmith

70

During the experience in my showroom I will tell you about the burin engraving applied to goldsmith craft, we will have a brief conversation on this special technique from the traditional Florentine goldsmith culture to the contemporary usage. You will watch, touch and observe the jewels engraved following different techniques. Then we will move to my lab where I'll show you the manufacturing stages, the preparation of metallic sheet, the description of different types of burin and their usage, how to deal with some of my equipment. Of course I will also have a brief exhibition so that you will better understand the different kind of engraving. In the second part of the experience we will prepare the drawing that we are going to engrave, you will understand how to use the burin in order to sign the sketch. Now you can finally try it yourself, engrave the pattern and polish your artifact before having some final consideration. You will have the chance to take your creation away with you.
