The Ancient Art of Marble Inlay

Just two steps away from the Old Bridge in Florence is located the artisan workshop where Simone Fiordelisi carries on his father's tradition: the ancient Italian art of scagliola and mosaic inlay, dating back to the end of 16th Century.

Unique marble tables and objects

Through a long process and much patience, as well as Mr. Fiordelisi's passion for his trade, beautiful inlays are created: decorations are engraved by hand with hammer and chisels and then filled with scagliola or mosaic, smoothed and polished.

Tables, pictures, panels and small marble objects can also be realized following the customers' own designs giving life to unique works of art, destined to increase in value over the years.

And it is with pride that Simone welcomes you in his laboratory, orienting you towards the right choice of designs and colors, with the possibility of being able to combine your marble top with wrought iron, marble or wood bases.

Every aspect of the workmanship is designed specifically for the environments (even for outdoors) that will have to accommodate these unique pieces, in the best artisan and artistic tradition typical of Florence.

The ancient art of scagliola and mosaic

The scagliola decoration and the mosaic decoration are two techniques used for centuries by Florentine artisans.

Everyone knows mosaic in hard stones, while scagliola is less known, a mixture of selenite powder, glue and pigments with which it is possible to create on marble tables and other objects ornaments and figures with pictorial or marbled effects.

The decorations in mosaic and scagliola by Arte Decorativa distinguish themselves for the highest artistic quality and for precision: traditional and contemporary motifs, flowers, views of Florence are just some examples of what Simone Fiordelisi is able to achieve.

Restoration of marble tables and objects

Arte Decorativa is specialized in the highly professional restoration of marble tables and objects damaged even in a very serious way: even a broken table can come back as new if it is restored by a craftsman who masters the secrets of marble decoration.
