Italian born sculptor Luca Savazzi has been creating stunning architectural sculpture pieces for three decades. He brings old-world craftsmanship into the 21st century with state-of-the-art production technology.

What sets Tartaruga apart is Luca’s experience as a master sculptor and engineer. Other cast stone mantel companies create low-quality approximations of classical European designs.
