My wife and I had 2 objectives for visiting Volterra: Etruscan history and alabaster. When leaving the Etruscan Museum, we asked for directions to an alabaster shop and were directed right around the corner. We entered to find not just a shop, but a workshop where Roberto was hard at work on a commission. Upon entering he came over to greet us, introduced himself and spoke to us about different kinds of alabaster. We watched him as he worked on a piece and then browsed over the pieces for sale in the workshop. While we would have loved to buy a lamp, we were concerned about it breaking in transit. We ultimately settled on two vases/candlesticks and a small handful of smaller tealight holders. We highly recommend a visit to Alab Arte. It is worth a trip to Volterra.

We had a fantastic exhibition of working with alabaster. Spun on a wheel and quickly turned into a piece of art. The actual shop has such beautiful works of art. This is one of the best alabaster shops in Volterra. Ask if you can see a demonstration, it is fun to see.

A true workshop, this studio is very unique, with many sculptures and models of sculptures present. Alabaster is a beautiful, usually white or translucent, soft gypsum taken from the hills around Volterra. The work done here is truly amazing, as detailed and intricate as any you will see. A visit of half an hour insures you've been in the presence of real artisans. Hey, Rick Steves stopped here for a segment!

I'm so glad I accidentally ran into this shop. The owner was pleasant and took us on a visit to his workshop which was very informative. Bought a couple pieces of beautiful alabaster which were shipped home.
