marmorino….IN THE BATHROOM

The natural Venetian plaster has a thickness fo about half an inch
when it is applied to wall bricks,
sometimes more if applied to an intervening layer of cocciopesto (small fragments
of crushed roof-tiles combined and mixed with lime) or pozzolan.
The texture is made up of about 9 layers and finished with soap (hot-pressed).
On entering such a bathroom one is reminded of echoes of ancient Roman baths.
