Volterra abounds in workshops and shops that have been displaying alabaster artifacts for decades.
Exploring the alabaster workshops is an extremely interesting experience not only for visitors but also for the local inhabitants who often go in to browse and chat with the artisans. The master craftsmen will enthusiastically tell you about the history, the working techniques and even add some anecdotes
