About us

Venetian plaster manufacturers and suppliers

Our History

Stucco Italiano was established in the 90s by Maestro Giovanni Polistena, who has been an Italian stucco artisan for over 40 years. Indeed, his specialization is the production and application of lime-based products. He started his career at the young age of 22. At the time, his passion for Venetian plasters led him to knead lime according to traditional recipes, when no paint-shop was providing this service.

First, he started his business in the Region of Venice, the cradle of Italian craftsmanship and the center of Italian architecture. Soon later, he began working abroad, applying Marmorino Venetian plasters and teaching others the art of their application. Ultimately, he decided to combine his experience with that of his friends, artisans and producers of lime-based materials. Thus, from this synergy, Stucco Italiano was launched.

Today, Stucco Italiano is among the most renowned Stucco manufacturers and Venetian plaster suppliers in Italy.

We are Italian stucco manufacturers

We are decorative stucco manufacturers. In particular, we are a decorative paints and Venetian plaster supplier.

In fact, we produce and sell a constantly expanding line of lime-based plasters for decorative finishes. All our products sink their roots in the long-lasting Italian tradition of building surface finishes. Indeed, our products catalog ranges from natural Venetian plasters to ancient Travertino and Pastellone. In addition, we also manufacture and supply a line of acrylic-based paints with high decorative value. Finally, we supply application tools for Marmorino and decorative additives for our plasters and paints.

Stucco Italiano distinguishes itself among other Italian stucco manufacturers and Venetian plaster suppliers in virtue of the artisanship nature of its trade.  Indeed, the members of our company concerned with the development and testing of the materials are plaster artisans themselves. This gives them deeper know-how on the quality of the materials, and a comprehensive understanding of the production cycle.

Our Mission

Dissemination of authentic Venetian Plasters

Initially, Stucco Italiano’s primary goal was the spreading of Italian stuccos and their application techniques. Today, the use of Venetian plasters has proliferated around the world. However, the fashionable trend of using Italian stuccos has encouraged the production of poor imitations and incorrect application procedures. Thus, as a stucco manufacturer and Venetian plaster supplier, Stucco Italiano’s objective is now to provide authentic materials and appropriate training to the professional. As a matter of fact, our Italian plasters are made according to traditional recipes. Venetian plasters’ natural ingredients respect the environment and convey to the finish its authentic beauty and long-lasting life.


Our main concern is the dissemination of authentic Italian and Venetian plasters. In order to realize beautiful surface finishes with an authentic look, we must follow appropriate application techniques. For this reason, teaching has always been a paramount commitment for the members of Stucco Italiano. Indeed, we are not only stucco manufacturers, but also dedicate teachers. Our master craftsmen have taught at the Scuola di Restauro of Vicenza and had a ten-year contract with the Hamlet School of Hillerød in Denmark. Furthermore, we have given plastering courses in other schools in Denmark (Rann) and in Great Britain (Goldtrowel training Center in England and in Walles). Venetian and Italian plasters courses take place regularly at our school in Italy. Furthermore, we provide free plastering courses at the offices of our clients and Venetian plaster suppliers.

Attention to modern needs

To maintain our goal of producing quality finishes, we found ourselves in the urgency to respond to a globalized world’s needs. Indeed, as stucco manufacturers, we are determined to comply with the necessities of our Venetian plaster suppliers based in the most diverse places of the globe. As a result, we are constantly expanding our production, including in it a variety of new finishes. As a matter of fact, many of them fall outside of our original lime product line. For example, besides Venetian plasters, through the years we have developed decorative materials that are acrylic-based. In addition to wall finishes, we have developed some solutions for seamless floors. These are in line with the Venetian tradition of Pastellone, the Mamorino for floors. Finally, our constant effort is oriented to the amelioration of the original plasters. Indeed, modern-day life not only requires stronger surfaces, but also materials that are easier to apply, and adhere to eco-friendly standards.
