F.lli Ferrari

Soapstone is a ductile and malleable rock found in deposits above 1,300 meters. This grey-whitish colored rock is the ideal material for the construction of stone stoves. Fabrizio and Claudio carry on this tradition deeply rooted in the Val d’Aosta region and practiced since the 1700s, by using the processing techniques they learnt from their father. The stoves made by the Ferrari brothers come in various models and sizes, decorated and custom-made. For those who love this material but are not interested in buying a stove, the Ferrari brothers make small-sized or monumental objects upon request.
