Heart of golden stone: Italian stone.
The stone cladding is the white soul of the Salento land. It is that light we all think of when we imagine a holiday in Italy. It is that warmth that we breathe as soon as we set foot in these parts and that we carry inside when we have to leave. Italian stone cladding, for a Salento, is the stone par excellence. To whom they rely on the safety of homes, the bewitching beauty of sacred buildings, the welcoming grandeur of farmhouses and farms.
It is that subtle charm that leads you to want to return to these latitudes as soon as possible. Because that light is missing from the heart and is needed by it.

A poetry stone, Italian stone coverings.

The seventeenth-century epic poet Ascanio Grandi described Italian stone as a natural stone created by Mother Nature soft and malleable. But then hardened by time and therefore used by the most refined architects in the “frontespitij” (that is, for the facades) of prestigious buildings. And in fact it was used for churches, important buildings, palaces attributable to noble families.
Several centuries have passed since those lines by Grandi and yet the Lecce stone coverings are still today the heart stone of the Salento people. Indeed, more and more often, nowadays, it is chosen as the lining of villas of a certain importance. But also for homes, and not only the homes of mature people, but also those intended to house young families.

The Italian stone, which has never gone out of fashion, especially in these latitudes, is in fact experiencing a period of renewed splendor and important revaluation. This is probably due to the attention that is increasingly being paid to the naturalness, simplicity and beauty of which these Lecce stone coverings are certainly a healthy bearer.

An Oscar stone: the “liccisu”.

Furthermore, Salento is increasingly chosen as a location for film sets, precisely because of its natural and impalpable light, thanks to the sun. But also of the stone that captures or reflects it countless times, on palaces, churches and squares. The Italian stone buildings are very recognizable on the small and on the big screen and have greatly contributed to increasing the interest in this land, which has remained unknown for too long.
Lecce stone cladding has always been used both for sacred buildings and buildings for common homes and, even if in ancient times it was called “the marble of the poor”. Today it is instead considered one of the most precious natural materials of Puglia. Precious and “gentle”, as it is often defined, for its workability and the softness it can give to the shapes.

Classic or modern Lecce stone cladding: the thousand faces of the “gentile” stone of Lecce.

Italian stone is suitable for use as a cladding in classic but also modern or trendy homes. In classic or antique interiors, we generally resort to the combination of coverings of several sizes, from the square one to the narrower and elongated one, of various sizes. In more modern homes, a large-format cladding is usually chosen, and the individual stone slabs are laid at a close distance, often without foreseeing the presence of the joint. Furthermore, the edges of the Lecce stone claddings can be straight and well defined or irregular and jagged. Both solutions fit perfectly into any context, whether modern or classic.

Moments to remember: Italian stone artifacts.

The revaluation of Lecce stone coincided with the enhancement of the ancient farmhouses and farmhouses – perhaps redeveloped or modernized according to the changed taste – as a location for weddings or ceremonies of various kinds. The white of the Italian stone coverings is well suited to the white of the dresses and decorations typical of the wedding day or the lights of events, small and large, to celebrate. The Italian stone thus does nothing but accentuate the purity of the ceremony, giving it a note of taste and emphasizing its elegance and luxury.
This trend is rapidly growing to the point that, in the wedding planning sector, there is a whole chapter in its own right, which coincides with the wedding in a farm, where the simplicity of the chosen scenario is punctually combined with a catering that rediscovers the authentic flavors offered. straight from the countryside, little treated, healthy, ancient and therefore more fashionable than ever.

A feast for the eyes: Italian stone coverings.

The masseria and the Italian stone farmhouse are a pleasure to experience in every season: the trend we have described. Today it comes out of the pattern for which a reception in a masseria is indicated in the summer months or in any case in the warm months. Carpets, comfortable seats, fine curtains also make rustic structures richer than ever, welcoming even on cold days, in short, resistant to bad weather. And then, if it’s cold outside, what’s nicer than surrounding yourself with the people we love most. In a farmhouse away from the stress of everyday life, to enjoy good food and good wine, offered directly by Mother Earth?
