Masterful stucco work
Stucco, a gypsum mortar made of limestone, sand and water, is used to decorate interior walls and ceilings. Italians were the masters of this technique: they were almost exclusively the sole purveyors of stucco work into the 18th century. However, the Meersburg stucco is Swiss. The stucco decor was created by Carlo Luca Pozzi, a member of the famous, Ticino-based artist family and studio.
