Having studied stone carving and Scagliola in Europe, Tartaruga’s founder Luca Savazzi redefined the ultimate historical stone casting medium.
The centuries-old process involves meticulous hand working of the purest high-strength cements with carefully chosen powdered stone and natural pigments to create Tartaruga Cortina Stone™.
Our hand casting process was developed to be historically correct in its surface texture, coloration, and patination, perfectly complementing the ultimate mantelpiece collection.
