This working studio also houses a small museum of pietre dure objects. The people who work here are charming and helpful, but not at all intrusive. We bought a lovely small "painting," and Enrico, the artist who made it (a 35-year veteran at Lastrucci) explained...More

We felt so welcomed in the studio. We were given a personal tour on how they cut the stones and make the mosaics. Then we visited their gallery. Such a rare treat - and such absolutely beautiful works of art.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
