Sassi in miniatura

A scale model reproduction of the Matera Sassi quarter has been the main activity of this workshop located in the historic centre of Matera since the start of the 1990s. They are unique pieces that charm both the tourists and the residents: for the latter, they have become a traditional gift. The workshop also makes lamps and other artisan objects, such as pen holders and book ends, of tuff stone. Everything is made by hand in the workshop in accordance with the techniques of maestro Eustachio Rizzi.
