CercaTrova ® is a hand pressed stone made with the centuries old Scagliola method of making a stone-like product that has been used by artisans for centuries.  The Scagliola technique came into formative use in 17th-century Tuscany as a substitute for costly marble inlays, the pietra dura works created for the Medici family in Florence. Using oxide pigments and other natural coloring agents the product maintains high integrity artistically.
