Leccese stone lamps: and there was light.

Nothing to interpret, nothing to guess, no secret to hide or reveal. It has always worked the same way, although over the years the technique has been perfected, modernized and innovated. It is the beauty of the stone lamp, beauty. Of all the lamps in the world: in metal, in glass, in stone. An infinite power in your hands. Almost like the discovery of fire, a revolutionary step forward. The history of the Leccese stone lamp is the history of man, struggling with the need to illuminate his hiding places, then his rudimentary homes.

And, as often happened in the history of evolution, Mother Nature herself went to the aid of the primitive, providing the necessary tools, certainly rudimentary, to respond to the urgent need. The first lamps were light twigs, therefore easy to transport, which were set on fire and which, unfortunately, caught fire easily. Their function was useful but the yield was not lasting enough. Something more was needed, on which to be able to rely even in conditions of environmental discomfort.

Only several millennia later, the world knew the lamp as we remember it today. It was the Egyptians who conceived it for the first time, together with all the achievements that are noted in the curriculum. Finally, lighting became within everyone’s reach and above all it was characterized by its lasting character.

Each Leccese stone lamp is a magic.

Even after the millennia that elapsed between the first rudimentary lamps and those developed by the Egyptians, that aura of magic around this piece of furniture has remained unchanged. The young thief Aladdin had only to rub his miraculous lamp for a magic to take place before his eyes. And from that lamp, by who knows what miracle, a genius came out ready to satisfy every request, however absurd it might be. Even if from the stone lamps of today a magical being like that genius does not come out, reinterpreted in a thousand different ways on TV and big screens – from which, incidentally, who knows what great things we would have to ask for -. The stone lamps retain a character of mystery and occupy, with arrogance, but in any case with all the merits, a place of great importance within every space. Nobody today would dream of buying a lamp and confining it in a remote corner of the house, far from the gaze and admiration of visitors. Anyone who has a Lecce stone lamp feels the need to show it, exhibit it, and turn it on to create a suffused, soft, delicate, refined atmosphere, depending on the style of the lamp in question. And just like any other piece of furniture, there are endless possibilities.
