Keepers of ancient traditions

  • • Stefano opened his own company at the age of 24
  • • His work has taken him to the most beautiful palaces in Venice
  • • He works with his older brother, Marco

Stefano Vianello was 15 years old when he started an apprenticeship in a restoration company one summer holiday. After finishing high school, he was hired. Despite being very young, he was fortunate enough to work with some of the best venetian masters, assimilating the most ancient techniques. When he was 24, he decided to set up his own business and founded the Vianello Pavimenti, together with his brother Marco. They specialise in Venetian terrazzo – also called Venetian seminato – the typical flooring of the Venetian palaces. It is a type of technique born from the reuse of waste from the processing of marble and other stones, they are then mixed with lime or cement. It may contain coloured glass or semi-precious stones. Each terrazzo is a unique work of art: it is impossible to reproduce the same texture or pattern twice.
