Bianco Bianchi

Scagliola is the art of creating intarsia decorations by blending selenite sand with coloured pigments and natural glues. The technique enjoyed immense success starting in the 1600s, and in the late 1940s, it was once again made fashionable by Bianco Bianchi, a Florentine ministry employee. Today, the workshop is led by his children and creates new products, including tables, countertops and small objects, as well as offers restoration services. The space also vaunts a museum, its historic pieces forming the most important collection in existence today. The atelier crafts extraordinary, unique pieces with a classical or contemporary style, many of which grace the most beautiful homes in the world, like the famous table depicting the head of Medusa, the logo of the Versace fashion house.
