Italian Plastering Courses

Venetian plaster course in Italy

Stucco Italiano’s School of Italian Plasters

Stucco Italiano’s school of Italian plasters was founded in the late 90s by Maestro Giovanni Polistena, with the mission of disseminating the authentic Italian plasters application techniques. Our teachers are all Italian master craftsmen with long experience both in applying and training artisans in the art of Venetian plaster and other Italian stuccos. Outside our school of Italian plasters, Stucco Italiano’s master craftsmen have taught at the Scuola di Restauro of Vicenza and had a ten-year contract with the Hamlet School of Hillerød in Denmark. Furthermore, they have given plastering courses in other schools in Denmark (Rann) and in Great Britain (Goldtrowel training Center in England and in Walles).

Italian Plastering Courses

Our Italian plastering courses consist of a 5-days theoretical and practical program that will guide the student through all the stages of the application of Venetian plaster and other lime-based stuccos, such as Travertino, Tadelakt, and Faux Marble. Furthermore, the students will also learn how to apply Venetian plaster for floors (Pastellone), Terrazzo floors, and some modern decorative paints. Thanks to the guidance of our experienced teachers, by the end of the course each student will know how to apply these materials in complete autonomy.
