why the owner of Safra, Luigi makes True authentic Italian Plasters.
The main mission of ARTENOVA was to make known to an always
expanding audience the wall decoration systems which were used
in all of the Italian art cities, and above all in Venice during
the years of its greatest splendor. These are the aspects, which
make them so unique in the world.
specification pages. That mission led SAFRA to the rediscovery
of effects and techniques typical of Italy's decorative past.
These rediscoveries include both famous (Venetian Stucco) and
less famous (Stucco Mantovano) products and application techniques
developed through the centuries, whose virtues are now stirring
new interest in the Architectural community worldwide. In keeping
with company philosophy SAFRA complimented its line of traditional
mineral finishes with a line of authentic earth colorants based
on earth pigments and water. These authentic colorants are therefore
unlike most of the pigments normally available on the market,
which are called Earths (Terre) but are actually based on mineral
oxides rather than true earth.
