One of the first to write about Venetian plaster was Marcus Vitruvius Pollio – a Roman author, architect, civil engineer and military engineer who lived during the 1st century BC. Most famously known for his multi-volume work entitled De architectura, Pollio is argued to be one the greatest Roman architects in history.

History of Venetian Plaster

Lime plaster is among the oldest building materials known to humankind; there is evidence of its use dating as far back as 9,500 years in the area of present-day Jordan. Later the Romans were known to use it mixed with marble dust as a fine application over a coarser lime and sand aggregate, not dissimilar to the technique used today by us. Continued use of slaked lime putty existed throughout the middle ages. Documented evidence of the Mantovano finish, resurrected by, and now reliably produced only by the Safra Co. of Villa Franca, Italy, dates to circa 1100AD. During the Renaissance in the mid 16 th century the Marmorino finish was reintroduced in Venice largely due to the efforts of Andrea Palladio and used externally over civil plaster masonry. By the 17th century many types of interior plasters flourished, the most notable is the highly polished Stucco Veneziano found in the palaces and Villas in Venice of 16th and 17th century.
