Progenitor of Venetian Terrazzo, Pastellone has ancient origins, so much so that examples can be found not only in ancient Venetian Villas but also in buildings from Roman and medieval period.
The traditional colour of Pastellone is red; it was originally obtained by inserting cinnabar red powders, extracted from a natural stone found in various mines in large quantities. Today, to make the classic shade of red Pastellone is used brick powder from demolition of old buildings. The modern evolution of the ancient "Pastellone" is the "Cocciopesto", which differs essentially in the polishing process.
Another classic shade of Pastellone is yellow, which is obtained using the land of Siena. There are also some rare examples of green Pastellone that was obtained through the use of of Treviso "green land".
Danilo Ballaustra is able to propose the realization of the ancient Pastellone thanks to DB Traditional collection with which it traces the classic processing phases;
The company also proposes a modern evolution of Pastellone through DB Teck line with which it realizes a low thickness Pastellone and satisfies any requirement in the various industrial, commercial, residential sectors where space problems exist.
