THE ALABASTER CRAFTSMAN: A CRAFT TO DISCOVER AGAIN
The co-operative society Artieri Alabastro organizes guided visits in it's workshop, for groups, schoolchildren or students, with the aim to give currency to a form of excellent artistic craftsmanship as the alabaster craftsmanship. A didactic way to learn about the different phases of the manufacture of this precious stone.

You will see the turner craftsman, with his ability, transforming a simple piece of alabaster into a vase, a bowl or an egg.

Or admire the sculptor while carving, with short and precise strokes, an animal or a free-hand decoration of a vase or a plate.

You will also see the finishing phases which transforms every item into a unique piece.
The large historical room , where manufactured articles from the over hundred years old history of the co-operative society are displayed, is also used as video room. The visit can, in fact, be preceded by the projection of a film about Volterra and the alabaster manufacture..
The co-operative society has also two show rooms. One is situated next to the workshop and another one is situated in the main square of Volterra, Piazza dei Priori.
