Introductory workshop to working in lecce stone1 day 5-10 people160 euros per person
Renzo Buttazzo is the Master of Pietra Leccese, an opal-colored limestone which is the absolute protagonist of the countless baroque masterpieces of the Salento region. Buttazzo’s smooth and soft contemporary sculptures express the shapes of nature blending poetry and design, and represent a proper revolution in the way Pietra Leccese has been worked for centuries. During the one-day workshop, Renzo Buttazzo offers all participants the opportunity to learn the traditional techniques and to practice on his own experimentations, which made him internationally renowned. Having the possibility to work on a personal block of stone, each participant can use it as an outlet for their creativity, in a meditative and serene atmosphere.
