Progenitor of the Venetian Terrace, Pastellone has ancient origins, so much so that examples can be found not only in ancient Venetian Villas but also in buildings of Roman and medieval times..
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 and in abundant quantities. Today, to make the classic shade of red Pastellone is used brick powder from the 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 by using the land of Siena. There are also some rare examples of green crayon that was obtained through the use of "green earth" of Treviso.
Danilo Ballaustra is able to propose the realization of the ancient Pastellone thanks to the DB Traditional line with which it traces the classic phases of processing; it also proposes a modern evolution of the Pastellone through the DB Teck line with which it satisfies any need in the various industrial, commercial and residential sectors, where there are space problems, realizing a low thickness Pastellone.
