The alabaster blocks are opportunely cut and dimensioned for the successive stages of work: the squadratura and the tornitura.

For the squadratura workings, the slabs are sawed in geometric shapes and then cut with discal saws and taglierine for work of mosaics, chessboards and other.


For the tornitura workings, the slabs are sawed in cylindrical shapes and are glued at a specific time with a special glue to the axis of the lathe, using affixed tools called rampini, the pieces are then dug and smoothed down with abrasive papers.

Then delicately they are detached from the lathe, because by now they have become vases, bowls, plates, lamps, and they are polished by hand or colored in bath of ecological colors.
