While most of our artisans have passed down their knowledge through the generations, CP Basalti has a unique story. Walter Pinna's dream was to work with the local basalt stone, a material that had always been considered second-rate. His father, who owned a cement factory, dismissed his idea, saying stone was too expensive; it was a thing of the past. But Walter, inspired by the imposing nuraghes built with basalt, was not deterred. His company today is the leader in working with not only basalt but also the local Orosei marble, developing endless techniques and finishes for the two stones. And now, this knowledge has found its next generation, as his son Carlo has joined him in both the workshop and showroom.
