Discover the inlays of precious polychrome marbles, of hard stones and precious gems that cover the walls of the great Cappella dei Principi (Princes Chapel), for which Opificio delle pietre Dure (The Factory of hard Stones) was created especially for these decorations and is today one of the most prestigious restoration workshops and museums worldwide.
