In keeping with its original vocation, we proudly remember how our stone was adopted in the gardens of Palladio’s Venetian villas. This noble archetype has made our country famous the world over, enduring unscathed into contemporary times and inspiring the development of other gardens, such as the English or French garden. The stone enhances these areas alongside geometrically cut shrubbery and decorative architectural elements, such as fountains, mythological figures, allegorical figures, musicians, animals, commedia dell’arte masks and Olympian gods.
Stone for the Garden Design
We collaborate with garden designers to produce standard and made-to-measure stone articles for parks, mansions, hotels, private gardens, public places and terraces. We can guide our customers, giving information on the various available materials and advising them on their preservation in outdoor environments. In addition to the design of stone articles, our consultation service includes a site assessment, and the drafting of a brief to enhance and decorate outdoor spaces. We are well acquainted with the tradition and style of the Italian garden, but have extensive experience with other European styles (particularly French and English gardens). At our artisan workshop we hand carve statues and sculptures of any size, in a Renaissance, Baroque or Neoclassical fashion. We can produce works from designs supplied by architects and designers, to adapt garden sculptures to modern tastes. Our workshop has a large warehouse of ready-made pieces that can be used immediately or finished to suit specific sites or customer requirements.
