If you look for some interesting and authentic present from Volterra/ Tuscany, this is the right place. This shop and workroom in one offers amazing handmade alabaster products, from the small decorations to the exclusive pieces of art. The owner, Silvia, is not only skilled but also very kind and available to explain and answer all your questions. If you tell her your chosen product is a present, she wraps it in a very beautiful packet.

Silvia is a talented artist and is the President of the Volterra Alabaster Association. She does outstanding work in her shop where she is the sole artist. She welcomes visitors in her rather small shop where cameras are encouraged. You may talk to the artist who peaks English as well as her native Italian. Silvia was born and raised in Volterra, starting her career at the local High School for Art. Her knowledge base was enlarged byf working for many of the alabaster artists in Volterra. With luck, you may meet Sofia, her daughter, who is often in the shop.

Upon arriving in Volterra one of the first shops you come across is the Artieri Alabastro. The Alabaster is georgeous. Different colors and some very unique things. The chandeliers are breathtaking reminding you of yesteryear. They have many different things to choose from. My friend purchased some modern design candlesticks and a necklace. Prices were reasonable for what you are getting.
