History: The Bessi family

Our history, between chalk and alabaster.

For more than a hundred years our family has sculpted in alabaster a piece of Volterra’s history.
Born in 1857 in Volterra, Cav. Giuseppe Bessi is an illustrious ancestor: an important student of the Florentine School of Art. Known as "The Master", he devoted his talent to alabaster sculptures, leaving behind a production of beautiful female busts.

His son Mino continued his activity as a sculptor by developing his own artistic style that enriched his father's patrimony. After World War II, the Alabastri Bessi collection will be managed by Ghebo Vero Bessi, and remains intact to this date.
