The craft business of Antonio Pastorelli is founded on 30 years’ experience in working Lecce stone. This type of limestone is mainly found in the Salento region. It is particularly soft, allowing the craftsman to model it easily, once quarried, in order to produce genuine sculpture. With time and exposure to the atmosphere, Lecce stone hardens and becomes as strong as marble. Using traditional techniques, Antonio Pasorelli carves enormous blocks of the stone, creating balustrades, ﬁreplaces, vaults, capitals and sculpture in general.
