TRAVERTINO

Loved by the Romans, the TRAVERTINO finish was used in most of the walls and columns of ancient Roman villas and has an aged stone-like effect and a porous texture.

The application of TRAVERTINO is complex and demands all of the skillful experience of the artisan, since there are four steps to the build-up process. Due to the stone-aged-like grain of the material, the finish must be uniformly applied in order to create a seamless effect. Made from the porous grains of Carrara marble, it can be used for both interiors and exteriors.
