wood inlay

As witnessed by the Museo della Tarsia, already in the 18th century, pieces of forniture were manufactured according to the inlay technique, with decorations and a particular type of wood working, thus being really appreciated in the market.

During the years, the several workshop specialised in the manufacturing of inlaid tables for the living room, which were successfully sold abroad between the end of the 19th century and the first decades of the 20th century.

Production was able to meet the changing needs of the market and the so called "rolini" (small inlaid tables), tables, pieces of furniture, chairs, objects are still successful in the market.

Recently, thanks to the studies carried out by the Museo della Tarsia, several workshops have spread to manufacture, restore, and market these typical products. The municipality holds the Guarantee Marks: Tarsia di Rolo and Tarsia Tradizionale di Rolo.

Theoretical and practical courses on inlay techniques are held every year by the Museum.
