Marmorino Classico

Natural lime-based Italian plaster

SKU: SM947. Category: . Tags: , , .

You can use Marmorino Classico, a versatile, hard-wearing, lime-based Italian decorative plaster indoors or outdoors to create smooth and marble-like, travertine, pitted and dragged effects. Marmorino has been used since ancient times to create high-end decor and due to it’s versatility it’s still one of the most important decorative plasters on the market.

If you prime and apply Marmorino correctly it can last 50+ years and can even be applied externally without protectors! Due to the alkalinity of the lime with marmorino you’ll create bactericidal, fungi and mould resistant walls and ceilings.

For smooth, ‘classico’ marmorino effects you should consider using Marmorino Fino.


Impera Italia’s Advice™

Marmorino is a porous, breathing natural plaster, but can be sealed to create durable special finishes in wet rooms, shower cubicles or around the sink. Outstanding sheen can be achieved if the applicator re-burnishes it a few more times while the last coat is drying (while it’s still ‘alive’).



Marmorino means ‘small marble’ and is a general term that describes lime putty enriched with marble grit. Contrary to popular belief, marmorino is not a polished plaster and was never used to describe high-gloss Venetian plasters.
