METALLIZZATO has a beautiful silk-like, metalic effect that creates a unique transparency and reflection of light.

The most recent addition to the Pietra Viva family of finishes is called METALLIZZATO. Pietra Viva has developed this finish to compliment the old decorating techniques and combine them with new and modern technologies that are now available. The application of the METALLIZZATO requires a highly refined knowledge of the material composition since metallic powder is mixed with the stucco. METALLIZZATO requires three base coats of PALLADIANO with the final coat being applied to create the unique metallic transparency and reflection of light. METALLIZZATO is applied by Pietra Viva only for interior walls and ceilings since the stucco is created by the finest of Carrara marble.
