Volterra Alabaster

Alabaster is a marvellous stone, extracted from the Volterra area and wisely carved in several craft workshops. Thanks to the stone, the town of Volterra was already a famous place since Etruscan times. The Antica Bottega (Old workshop) from 1912 combines figurative sculpture with a complete range of products made with alabaster.

Visit to the craft workshops with a demonstration of the stone’s manufacture. Screening and explanation of different phases of the manufacture (from extraction to finished product).
