The ProgettoArte began about 15 years ago in a very picturesque location, a cave of the famous Sassi of Matera, specifically to restore this precious Heritage. Today ProgettoArte, while remaining active in this area, produces lighting fixtures, building products, furniture and ornaments made from tuff. Each product is made by hand by craftsmen, along with designers and architects of international standing; each is designed to be seen and touched, so as to enjoy all the little “imperfections” that make this stone so alive and beautiful.
Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm and from 4 pm to 7 pm. Open Sunday morning

Mosaic masters specialised in these techniques make jewellery and ornaments, […]
