Venetian plaster wall

Traverto is a decorative lime plaster – thanks to its grit size and excellent natural binders – you will be able to create the most immaculate effect on interior wall surfaces, with only one coat application. Rustic textures that can be attained to imitate weathered stone are described as veining, etching, marbling – or the surface can be compacted and burnished to a smooth satin finish.

It provides a range of beautiful finishes to seal surfaces without the need for any further decoration.  Its natural colour, often tinged with coral pink, can also be enhanced with shades of your choice, for a modest incremental cost.

You can use this Italian plaster for interior walls and ceilings, as it has low dirt retention and good weather resistance. Traverto is resistant to algae, mould and is completely natural.

Although TRAVERTO  can be considered a high-quality DIY product, to guarantee the optimum effect a professional service is recommended.


How to apply Traverto Italian plaster

Apply Unifix primer before the plaster to ensure durability and adhesion. After the primer is dry, apply Traverto on one coat. Once the plaster is completely dry you will need to protect the plaster with Impera Wax for interior application only.

Traverto should be applied with a Venetian plastering trowel.

For a rustic finish, you should use a Natural Sponge Float.


Impera Italia’s Advice™

High amounts of natural binders (mostly lime) will allow you to apply Traverto with extreme ease compared to other large grain natural decorative plasters. This feature makes it the ideal product for projects where you’d like to create stone-like finishes of great depth.


Travertine* has percolated into the décor vocabulary of the UK, originating from the Roman quarries of Tibur (Tivoli in contemporary times) – a crystallised limestone formed from organic chemical precipitates dissolved in water.  As a durable aesthetic material with resistance to algae, a porosity allowing breathing and effective sound insulation, it has been used for landmark buildings such as the Sacre-Coeur Basilica in Montmartre, Paris and the Sears Tower (1947/108 storeys) in Chicago.
