The scagliole, Italian innovation

The scagliola (from the Italian Scaglia, "scale"), also called "stuccomarmo" is invented after the discovery of a gypsum in northern Italy, the selenite. Mixed with glue and pigments, the calcined stone becomes a paste that allows the realization of works such as tables inlaid with hard stones (Medici Chapel in Florence) or columns (Duke of Bavaria Chapel). The use of very sophisticated techniques consisting in coloring the paste directly allows to create a perfect imitation of marble on the surface.
