Technology and craftsmanship at the service of architecture and restoration work. This was the work carried out by Ariottimarmi for the restoration of the Cloister in the Monastery of St. Chiara in Vercelli. In order to replace some of the columns and capitals, Ariottimarmi created silicon casts of each object. Plaster models were taken from these, then "copied again" in stone by manually sculpting each piece. Ariottimarmi also created the Luserna Stone flooring in the monastery's mediaeval corridor building, renovated by architects Enrico and Luca Villani.
