Romano Bianchi

From the quarry to the customer: the objects made by Romano Bianchi and his son Roberto are 100% Volterra, given that the quarry is owned by the family. The firm was founded in 1959 by Romano Bianchi, a graduate and art teacher at the School of Art in Volterra. Today, the workshop specializes in making lamps and lighting items, all handcrafted in alabaster, respecting the ancient traditions. In addition to the creations of the workshop's masters, the workshop also makes pieces based on the customer's design, putting the art, history, creativity and culture of Tuscany at the customer's service.
