We were renting an apartment only a couple of blocks away and accidentally stumbled upon the open doors of the studio. Although we weren't sure that visitors were welcome, since it is obviously an artists' studio with work being done, we were motioned in by...More

This working studio also houses a small museum of pietre dure objects. The people who work here are charming and helpful, but not at all intrusive. We bought a lovely small "painting," and Enrico, the artist who made it (a 35-year veteran at Lastrucci) explained...More

Don't hesitate to enter this fascinating studio. I was a bit intimated going in, but the family is incredibly gracious and give a wonderful tour of their work and gallery. Everything is done in the centuries old tradition and is incredibly labor intensive. You could...More

This is a wonderful place to see the artists at work. Intriguing and beautiful don't do the art form justice. This is a must see. We visited in the evening around 5pm. The shop was not at all crowded and the artists were working on...More

We felt so welcomed in the studio. We were given a personal tour on how they cut the stones and make the mosaics. Then we visited their gallery. Such a rare treat - and such absolutely beautiful works of art.

If you are already familiar with the art of pietre dure you absolutely cannot miss a visit to I Mosaici di Lastrucci the next time you visit Firenze. If you have not yet seen much of this work, then first visit the Opificio delle Pietra...More

Usually, you visualize little colored square tiles that make up an image. So imagine my surprise when I walked into the Mosaici Di Lastrucci today.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
