La pietra ollare

Of the old traditional activities in Bassaì Bregaglia, a prominent place is occupied by the crafting of soapstone. Roberto Lucchinetti has taken this ancient art and, in addition to laveggi, pots which have been in existence since 70 AD, he makes chalices, furagn (lidded containers used to store food), coffee services, vessels and 'pigne', stoves in stone with elegant lines. Visitors can see these and other objects in his studio-museum, near the church of Prosto, by appointment.
